Learn to drive a sweep boat - Free lessons

Eleven years ago I built my own sweep boat and taught myself to drive. It has 20 ft x 30 inch tubes, so it is not quite as big as the commercial sweeps and therefore is probably easier to pilot. The boat can carry a pile of gear and still be surprisingly maneuverable. It is a blast to drive!

This is your opportunity to drive a sweep boat. All you need to do is to extend and invitation for a Middle Fork Salmon trip in the first half of July, August, or early September. I am a happy camper who gets along with just about everybody from wake-and-bakers to teetotalers and I can help with gear, logistics, etc. PM me if you are interested.
