    Wanted to see if I could post a picture on the new forum. If this shows this is a boat I'd like to duplicate in SS&G.

    What's that one made of? Looks a bit like stainless steel. An ironclad kayak?

    Interesting. As Dave Brubek would have said, "Ain't that weird!"

    Looks like an old punt boat for duck hunting. I seen a few years ago back in Delaware. Most were a bit longer though. Dave.

    Is it a "Water Moccasin" pirogue? I once repaired one very similar to yours for a friend. Not sure if it was the same brand as your boat, or another . Modeled my son's "Lake Bistineau " pirogue after it. A very popular and handy boat.
    Please tell me how did you post the picture?

    Thanks, beekeeper

    Beekeeper,
    It is a Water Moccasin. Built by Lynn Fogleman. It is one of the first,ie no serial number.It is 9' 4" and weighs about 38 lbs.It has been my favorite boat for about 30 years I have another one similar same size but much heavier. His brother and sister now have Water Moccasin boats at Stonewall. . I'll post some more looking for advice on duplicating it in SS&G. Also I'll check the steps about posting the picture and reply to that question. Right now I'm back in Texas for some more medical appointments for my Bride and family visits.

    Back in the dark ages Herters had one like it they sold threw their catalog.

    For the younger generation , Herters was like Cabelas or Bass Pro is today. Herters , World Famous Outfitters back in the 50's.

    It's like one that Herters had for sale in their catalog before they closed up shop.

    For the younger folks , Herters was the original mail order catalog for sporting goods. They were in the 40's and up to the 60's. Today you can find some of their stuff in the Cabales catalog or web site.
    I will not swear to it but it looks like Cabelas took over a lot of things ( even props in the stores ) from Herters.
    They were before Cabelas , Bass Pro , Gander Mountain or any of the others.

    Chuck, when I was growing up my dad and I always looked forward to getting the Herters catalog each summer. It was the hunters wish book. In the early sixties we started getting the Gander Mountain catalog every summer too. It wasn't as large or as fancy as Herters but it didn't matter. As Phil Robertson might say: they were all a man needed. Dave.

    Herters did have a similar boat. I bought a used one probably about '58. It was wood covered in doped canvas. I had visions of running my trap lines with it. Didn't work out so well dragging it over rocks and ice! I've learned a lot since then. Herters also bought furs and were generally better priced than our local buyer.

    Guess I'd better make a trip to Bass Pro, Cabalas, Gander Mountain, and Academy while I'm in the Big City!

    Thanks for the info about posting. I will look into it when I get back to my own computer. Right now the fishing is too good to worry about little problems like posting pictures.

    Missed the part about medical appointments. Hope they went well.
    I think I recall "Woodman" reproduced a store bought kayak as a strip build. You may want to do a search for it.

    Thanks Beekeeper,
    I'll look for his post. Medical appointments have become routine. Joyce had some pretty aggressive cancer, but the God has blessed us with healing and now all we have are routine check ups.
