If I worked on it, I used on-board tools.

If I couldn't fix it with the tools on-board, I added the tool to the kit.

I guided part-time from '87-'02 starting with a Wooly 18 outboard.

I ordered this boat from Glen Wooldridge on July 2, 1989 and launched it August 10, 1989.

Don't let the age of the boat throw you -- she's not beat up, just broken in.

I started a logbook and kept track of every trip, every gallon of fuel, every minute of use, every service, every problem, every solution.

You can review them andor have copies -- there are a lot of memories vested in them, a lot of great river-running, and a lot of good fishing trips.

I've never been much of a hunter but she's hauled moose and is just as capable of hunting on the rivers as she is at fishing.

I set her up just the way I wanted 'my boat' to be.

She's got gee-whiz and extras that make a difference -- I spared little expense when I did something.

She's hauled a few tons of freight one entire lodge, hundreds of fishers, more hundreds of fish, moose, numerous campers, hunters and their camps and gear, canoes, kayaks, other boats and game, pulled or towed a number of other boats out of problems, and been the source of a lot of great times.
