    Tough winter and worse spring

    After about three years of my sternum not healing the Dr finally had to go in and wire it back together. Mine was because of a car accident. Now if you look at my x-rays it looks like I was put together with bailing wire. Which works for an old farm boy like me. Lets me fish and paddle...

    What Makes A Boat A ..........?

    It was some of the best salmon I have ever had. We use to take a smoker with us and smoke it right at the camp site. Man I miss those days.

    What Makes A Boat A ..........?

    My Dad and I use to salmon fish in the fall on Lake Ontario in a 12 row boat. I remember being towed by 36" salmon in that rig. What a fun time. I can't imagine what it would be like in a canoe or kayak.

    Which boat?

    Thanks everyone. Beekeeper, you have not muddied the waters at all. All of you have been a big help and helped me to see and choose the right craft. Now all I need to do is get through the next nine months and the move then I can start the build of my Sasquatch.

    Which boat?

    They are different. The Southwind is 17'9" long, 28" wide and Height bow/mid/stern 12.5"/10"/14.5. The Sasquatch I am looking at is 18'6" long, 36" wide and Height bow/mid/stern 20"/14"/20". Not a big difference but different enough for what I need.

    Which boat?

    Thanks Jack, I have figured that the seat height would have to be lower in the Southwind for stability reasons.

    Which boat?

    The height of the seat in the Sasquatch is taller than the seat in the ld make it easier for me to get in and out of.

    Which boat?

    Chuck, In answer to your questions I like the looks of both. As for getting in and out the Sasquatch would be the easier of the two to get out of. Higher seating position. I have read Harrymic's builds on both here and on Jem's Forums as well as your build. The upper body6 is pretty good so...

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    I also stop and ponder those from the past as I pass through. Some of my family were here long before the Europeans arrived and I have often wondered if I am walking the same paths they did.

    Which boat?

    I am moving to north Florida sooner than planned. Medical Retirement, I originally was going to build a Southwind to use here in Washington state. I am thinking with my back and right leg permanent issues a Sasquatch would be the better choice as I will be using it around the Lake City/Live...
