Its a Dave Scadden Class V rated boat

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

Hey Mogur, great pic. I blieve that the boat in your pic is a Udisco import. The Udiscos(210 denier noeprene fabric) were that grey/blue trim color and increasingly larger bow tube diameter. I don't remember where they were manufactured, mabe Korea? The pic from the OP appears to be the yellow/blue configuration with continuous diameter tubes that Stansport imported from China during the late 70's to the middle 80's. Both had the small diameter brass valves.

Now on to the more imporant bit about that pic... Mogur, You would seem to be a great father. You built a frame and oars and taught your children how to use them. You Sir, have my respect. I hope your children appreciate the gift. It seems that there are fewer men who pass this onto their kids. My father is one of those men and I hope to pass this onto my son.

Any guesses?
I have the same boat but have lost the brass valves. ANyone know how I can replace them?

I vote Udisco. Try finding some threaded brass plugs at your harware store. You could get lucky!

Buddy and I did the same back in the early 70's. Wood frame--good to go, flipped it many times in class 3.

Wow, that was the day. We also built 2 by 6 frames for those boats, Udisco seems right, back in the late 70s early 80s. Ran alot of 4 and even some 5 with them, typically resulting in lost gear, and trips to the ER. As idiotic as that seems, we were smart enough to wear wetsuits, vests, and helmets. After a particularly poor preformance on the lower narrows in 83, where I "saw the light coming" before I washed out, we got smart [er] and bought some campways MIWAKs. Funny thing, those Udisco's ended up being dragged as beer boats on our multiday desert trips as well. Convergent boater evolution I guess.

wading pool!!! My dad used to blow our little '12 Legacy bucket boat in the back yard, and fill it with water from the garden hose! (just another suggested use along with the beer boat, and kid sized oar boat) Also, since there seem to be allot of parents on this thread, and boaters who were raised by boaters (we are soooo amazingly blessed, aren't we!) I wanted to invite any of you who might be interested, to check out this FB group for boater parents raising (or have raised) little boaters... River Mammas Group
