    jbm,

    If your here by Saturday, May 19, you could run up the Knik River to the Glacier with us. There will be others going and lots of skinny water and fun little channels to run. We meet under the highway (at the Knik River Bridge) @ about 10:00am. There is a thread (called Knik River Run on May 20) on this site that talks about it. Its actually guna be on the 19th. Sounds like a kool boat, would like to see/hear it... "fishon"

    Out of curiosity, why not offer that motor and pump combo in a larger boat? Like a 20 or 21' with a 6' or greater bottom? Build it light, and it could be a great load hauler with reasonable fuel burn.
    Honestly, while those small boats look like "fun", they don't seem very utilitarian. You aren't going to load it up for a Moose hunt.

    20-21' is just to big for my type of hunting. i have hunted many times in alaska and never not made it up the river we hunt on where others with the 20-21' could not because they were just to big. i hunted 4 guys out of 1 like this but 3" longer and yes we had to make two trips to get all the guys ,gear, and game out. but this is a price i will pay every time if it means that we will make it up and back . they handle so much better also then the longer boats. this 1 will have no trouble hauling 2 moose at 1 time if they are cut up some and with the hyd trim to ease getting up on step is nice also.
