    ole dutch will be on his way in the spring to pick up his boat, I'm currently mushing back to the boat shop to build boats from the Northwest Arctic to Nenana. By the time I get off those runners, I think I'll be done with this crazy winter, I hope spring-break up comes early for us canoeists. 2019 will be a prolific year........

    Ole dutch got stopped up from travel by that hurricane last month. Once I get back from remote, I'm looking forward to posting some much needed updates on canoes. Especially some of the adventures and hunts.........

    Thanks all for your kind words. I don't post much, and so it means a lot you'd share some well-wishes nonetheless. Right now Dad's recovering from his last round of radiation. More in the future, and it teaches you to enjoy every little moment. Mainer--per your rec finally sent him a copy of Dead River Rough Cut. (A little aside, but that river whooped me good when I was in my teens and thought I was indestructible.)

    VernAK, we'd be pleased to meet you one of these days.

    4merguide, I certainly hope to find out an answer to your question!! Last fall I shuttled my buddy from Circle to Eagle for a float with his dad last October. Two very competent guys. They were out for moose, but they kinda packed like you crazy sheep hunters. I won't be sad to have a bigger boat






    I'm still hoping Mainer won't mind posting a couple of pics as this boat gets finished up, without revealing too much of his voodoo magic. Looks like pickup will be within a few days of Sept 7, definitely by the 20th.

    Dutch,

    I hope to meet your Dad on one of our rivers some day.

    You'd be amazed at how many of we Geezers are out here
    on the river.

    Heya Mainer, yah those old Mainers, geeze they're tough. He looks great.

    Crazy looking at my shop in those pics, from a year ago, what was chock full of unpainted hulls. Now's widdled down to just 4 darn-near finished boats left: couple of 18 footers and couple 22 footers as the last batch.

    Hoping to have ah gathering of you crazy freighter canoe guys the end of winter, so you can network on hunts, or throw rotten tomatos at me during the dinner, haha!

    Also hoping to slow down during the heating fuel season.
    Though a 140 ft long shop is great space to move around in, the heating fuel consumption in the interior, on such a space is crazy!

    It'll be good to get you darn boaters on the water.
