Anybody Need another Boat Project?

 

Jim Young, waiting for ice for his iceboat in western Montana, has 24' St. Pierre dory that's surplus to his needs:

"...bought [it] but never did receive a title. It has sat for years under a tarp
and needs TLC. Currently it is powered by a 8hp aircooled Honda motor
through a lawn mower transmission to the shaft and bronze prop. It was elec
drive when I got it but all the batterys were bad so I reconfigured it.
That boat is for sale cheap if a coot wants it."

Sitting in Somers, on the shore of Flathead Lake.

“Significant” is an interesting word.  It suggests “some” and some is likely too many.  I’m with the States, not just Oregon, in feeling “some” is too many.  Lake Havasu in AZ has already been invaded by Quagga Mussels.  While canoes and kayaks may, or may not, be significant seems to me immaterial.  Any is too many.  I expect the idiots back using Tui Chub illegally for fishing in Diamond Lake, for example, think a few won’t make any difference.  Tut Chub are already making a comeback there after millions spent trying to eradicate them.

Sorry John,
I was not very clear,
The design is for a 16' New York-style Whitehall based on the plans the NWSWB had for a 14" boat. She was built to order in 2002 at NWSWB, instructor Dan Packard
thanks for fixing up the list, you are a workin' fool!
cheers

Re: [MessaboutW] Re: Coots Boat Gallery

 

Email corrections or additions to the Boat Gallery to me, or the group. I can save a photo of your boat(s) on coots.org, but there are lots of places you can publicly stash a bunch of photos on the Interweb, so doing that and sending me a link is the best option.

Jim - Sorry that you and Lucy can't make it.  Next time.

Dan -  Your offer sounds great! But, I'm not sure how big my group is.  Son Mike might make it with a possibility of daughter Patti.  I am awaiting replies now and will get  you an email reply as soon as I know, probably today, sometime. Thanks.

Looks like I won't be able to make it this year.  I just got a reply from my doctor re whether rowing/paddling was an okay activity during recovery from last month's surgery .  He said "No, not for a couple more weeks."  Guess I'll miss the fun in the rain.

Lemme just say on the invasive species tag business…….if you haven’t been to a state, and the number of said states is increasing at far too rapid a pace, where zebra mussels or asian carp or other kinds of nasty imports from foreign countries and climate, you ain’t seen nuthin’.  If it’s at all possible we can keep careless or ignorant folks from importing them into Oregon and the PacNW it’s a good thing.  And it costs money especially in Oregon where boat things and fishing things are funded by user fees.  

It’s a nuisance to buy a tag/license, it’s still a bit confusing but the consequences of not protecting Oregon’s waters is huge.

I’m just an old retired guy with no axe to grind, I’m just sayin’…….

With "good" weather, Nancy and I will be there. I need to run and get my Evasive Species Permit for my canoe, this week. This is one of our favorite jaunts. It is just beautiful, up the creek. Plus, all the birds and waterfowl make it very special. I'm not sure about Coots, however ... Ha! Dave Haverstock


Re: [MessaboutW] Re: Coots Boat Gallery

David Graybeal
 

Yes - I will. But I'm a ways away from getting back to the completion of the boat... and from being able to afford the motor. Though I did buy a lottery ticket. So, who knows, maybe I'll be able to afford TWIN outboards <G>


Re: [MessaboutW] Re: Coots Boat Gallery

 

Got 'em! Do you still need a motor for Spindrift?

Bob, sounds like fun and I'd like to join the group.  Could we possibly carpool together from Corvallis?  I have a kayak rack on my Jetta so I could drive.  (Assuming of course you are planning on paddling a kayak.)

Thanks for the post, John.

I will be there!  It is a great place to explore.  You can go inland and it is first a major wetland surrounding Beaver Creek, and eventually farm land.  Go under Hwy 101 towards the ocean and you can get through the old state park all the way to the sandy beach.  Everything.

Don't worry about a little rain.  Andrew's writeup show the weather is part of the fun:
