Alvin is covering for him this week as I had prior commitments.

Went 19 years with the 4 rivers lottery and never drew anything at all. I seriously doubt that I'll score one this year. What dates are you thinking? Early ? Late ? Mid ? weekend or mid week ?

I got my Andy Hutchinson/High Desert Dories GC Classic plans in the mail last week. Time to start a build!

I will probably blog it on Woodenboatpeople.

She isn't excatly a Dory but she isn't exactly a drift boat. She is self bailing and she runs whitewater really nice!

Is hard to see the changes with it sitting on the trailer, just what did you modify to make it "Not exactly a dory". Where did you start your changes?

It is not fully decked, the only decked part is the stern. It has no hatches! I built it for one purpose, to run the Gauley river! I wasn't sure l would be bringing it home so l didn't do anything to special to her, she doesn't even have a name. But she made it and l would like to deck the boat and fix her up!

Yes it is, l bought the book, drift boats and river dorys and used the two pages sketch to build it. I honestly built it in two weeks. I was off work and worked on it all day for two weeks.
