Thanks for the information Joni - it's much appreciated. Yes, I will be near W. Yellowstone and can swing in there to pick up a bag. What's the name of that place if you don't mind?
Regarding the delay with the oars and fins. I wouldn't have minded the delay, had I been told while I was purchasing everything that there would be a delay. I didn't find that out until I received my boat and there was a slip of paper notifying those items were on backorder. Again, not a big deal, but I would have been a little more upset had I been leaving for Montana a few weeks after the purchase. Again, great boat - it has exceeded expectations! Also, Dave has been responsive to my inquiries.
Thanks again for the information....Tight Lines
