Ever seen one of those little boats they use to herd logs around in
a log
pond? I've been wracking my brain, but I can't recall what they're
called.

A friend of mine used to
drive on at the Hull-Oakes mill at Dawson (west of Bellfountain),
but I
never went up there to see him work it.
I *think* it many be called a log bronc. I have the Hull-Oakes video
and if I get around to it, I can watch it and see if I can confirm
that.

Incidentally, the Hull-Oakes mill is the last mill using steam power.
They give tours and it is worth the drive if you are interested at
all in old technology.
