Could that be one of the late Randy Fabreze's Ouzels??

I think AZ JEFE has this right, Randy built about 20 or 30 of them. PM me and I can give you some more info.

Hey Chutney,
Post info up here, if that's cool. I'm interested in river dory history, and I'd bet there are a few others on the Buzz who are as well. After Jefe posted that it might be an Ouzel, I searched around, and couldn't find word one on them.

I knew Randy and knew that he built the Ouzel mini-dory but never got pictures of them. A close friend was on a winter Grand Canyon trip with one in the late 1980's and related a story to me about putting a hole in it at Crystal and wanting to scuttle it but they wound up repairing it over 2 days instead. As I recall, they had to prop the Ouzel over a fire to get it warm enough for the epoxy on their repair to set. I've forwarded these images to my friend but haven't gotten a reply as of yet.

Brad Dimock mentioned the Ouzel in a post on woodenboatpeople.com and I will ask him about this boat as well.

I am almost positive that this is a Randy Fabres ouzle. I have one in my carport and my sister-in-law has two at her place, one of these probably being the one AZJefe mentioned in the Crystal story. I know that there is at least one more in Flagstaff. I can call my sister-in-law tomorrow and get more info if anyone is interested. Jeff I tried to reply to your PM I hope I was successful.

One of the few references I could find lastnight was in the Spring 2008 Boatman's Quarterly Review, in a couple articles on trips taken during the '83 high water. I've recently found Brad's fretwaterlines blog, and it's awesome. He's doing some really cool work, and I've learned lots of good info from his blogs.
