    Default A different kind of drift boat

    For the past few weeks I have been working on a small boat. It is sort of a pirogue/jonboat hybrid designed for floating the slow streams in Mississippi.
    I finished gluing the basic hull structure yesterday.



    Photos of finished boats may be found on the designer's website

    I am building the 14' version with the motor mount.

    I have the interior surfaces glassed. I am working on the frame work to support the decks on each end. I haven't touched it in 2 weeks.

    First time I've seen a boat like this, it appears that it'll haul a good load of gear. I like that in a boat.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
