    UP the Gulkana River with a freighter.

    Does anyone know if you can go UP the Gulkana River. Looking at a map I'm wondering if it is possible to float the 3 miles or so down to the West Fork of the Gulkana from Paxson Lake and then motor back up the Gulkana to where you started from? I know it's swift and there are rocks. But just...

    Herters Guide Boat Value

    I have a Herters Guide Boat. I think I have decided to sell it since I picked up a Grumman Sport Boat. It is very similar in dimensions to the sport boat. 15 feet long, 32 inch wide transom, 38 inches wide at the widest point. But it's heavy. I haven't weighed it but I estimate it to be...

    Hole in Herters Canoe

    Picked up an old square stern Herters. It's built like a tank and in pretty good shape. It has a double hull with a 3/4 inch hole in front of each seat. There is also a hole in the rear where I assume the water that drains into these holes comes out so that it can be bailed. Does anyone know...

    Kaboat Motor Lift

    Several people wanted to see how I mounted my lift on my kaboat. Hopefully this photo gives the gist of it. I have a 2x6 across the tubes connected to the rear oar locks. The front braces of the lift mount on that, I also use it as a seat. The back is a little different because I mounted...

    Riverboats or canoes

    Some of the larger canoes we have now are almost like these old riverboats. At what point does a large freighter canoe become a riverboat? This photo, taken by my Dad, is either on the Yukon or the Tanana River.

    Grumman or Scott Freighter?

    Seems to me a lot of people are switching to the Scott Freighters from the old grummans. Personally I think I like the grummans better for what I want to do. Mostly because they are lighter and a little because they are aluminium, and they are narrower. I guess in short they are a smaller...

    Extreme Amazon Canoes

    I keep looking at some of the canoes they use in the Amazon Basin. Those people get pretty extreme in their canoes. I think some of them are close to 40 feet long. They likely use them because they are so efficient on fuel. Here is a pic of a couple.

    20 yr old and handgun

    I have a 20 year old daughter that wants to keep a handgun in her car. Is that legal? I know it is illegal for someone under 21 to have a concealed weapon, what about in the glove box? I haven't been able to determine for sure online.
