That's an Ouzel. A friend of mine had one on our April,1983 Grand trip and it was the first flipless grand trip in that dorry design. The only problem we had was that we put too much ETOH on it and it started taking on water in the first mile on the river. It was a rock and roll ride. It should be noted that while the water was a bit higher than normal it wasn't the stomping flows they had latter. Our put in date was the last day of the winter season 4/15 and we had a great 21 say trip in the canyon and another 3 days to Pierece Ferry.

The one on our trip was loaded heavily and had a very lively ride. One thing you might want to try out in a pond is getting it back upright yourself. I know it can be done because I watched him practice before the trip. They're a fun boat if you want to row a dory. They are also an old boat so check out the glass for dings and brush up on your fiberglass repair skills. Judging by you picture you we'ren't around for fiberglass kayaks unless you've got a squirt boat or race boats.
Have fun you could probably bag a first D in the NF of the Payett in an Ozel.

There will be no first D on the N fork Payette. Too breakable at this age!

Ouzel advertisement from 1984

As a dory lover I knew that I had seen something about the Ouzel boats. After searching my collection of old river mags I found this. Advertisement from River Runner Magazine July 1984. Cool! Mike

I'm sorry, but I knew Randy and Denise a long time ago. Can anyone tell me what happened to him? He was such a memorable, charismatic, genuine person.
