Ron, what'd you end up doing with the "Old Rotten" (the one I sold you in Palisade)?

Wish I could join you, but we're moving to Colombia (the one by Venezuela) in the middle of the month. Maybe in 2018 I can get in on this? Happy trails to all...

Jeff,

Lo siento que no puede ir en el barco madera flotante de rio colorado. Tienes una buena tiempo en su nueva vida en Columbia.

Adios mi amigo,
Mark

Howdy Jeff,

I still have her. She is my "rock boat". Hoping to refinish her and do some decking. It is hard keeping up with 2 wooden boats though. Oljeto has a Grand trip coming up at the end of the month. "Old Rotten" definitely got me hooked.

10 days till The 6th Annual Colorado Wooden Boat Float.

Put your Wood on the Water. Looks to be the best year yet for water flows. Meet at Rancho del Rio on Saturday the 16th at 10:00 am for launch and float to Two Bridges with us (8 miles) or overnight camp on the river and float to Catamount on Sunday (18 miles).

This years events include downriver race with prizes for fastest boat, slowest boat, most fish caught, prettiest boat, best build, most beers drank, best camp cook, and most entertaining at campfire.

contact Mark Hilbert for more information at 720-375-6357 or 6th Annual Colorado Wooden Boat Float - Wooden Boat People

BYOB: bring your own BOAT, Burgers, Beer. Water, charcoal and firewood for camp would be appreciated.

I will definitely be in on this next year! Bringing my 70's woodie with me on my move back from Salem, OR in October. Hope it was a good time this year. I did the OR Wooden Boat Festival on the Mckenzie this year.

Has anyone done the lower blue in their drifter? What about the S. Platte in Denver?

The logistics of getting a wooden drift boat to the water on the Lower Blue would probably make it a non-starter. You have to rope boats down a 100ish foot cliff. OK, not really a cliff, but a really steep hill. The diversions in the Jones Ranch section are probably not going to be wooden boat friendly either...

CO WBF 6

6 Wooden Dories this year, a Hog Island Drifter and 2 rafts on the float this year plus Silvia on an SUP. 19 people made the float with participants from Switzerland as well as Idaho. Great times at camp and beautiful weather for our 28 mile long float from Pumphouse to Catamount. Thanks to all who joined us this year, I look forward to more good Floats in the future.
