Added some bling so my wal mart anchor will know it's banging an uppidy drift boat


Hopefully some meth head doesn't think it's 100 dollars worth of copper

Also mocked up some kneelocks at work today. Cnc machines are fun.



Most important design criteria is will it fit a cup holder and fly patch/magnet

Got the fly deck cut, going to glass it this week and filet in some strengtheners. (That activity is practice for a fun project in the future wink wink). Used scrap for the anchor pedal bracket and somehow looked like I know what I'm doing

Trying to get this thing beefy enough to stand on. Or at least for a 100 lb dog to jump in and out of the boat

Bum,
That is really looking spectacular. Congratulations.

Do you think when we go out and you use the bamboo rod you could use the yarn strike indicator instead of the plastic bobber?

I don't know if you saw that giant brown that that lady caught on the hooch with RTA, but she had a xl white bobber on. They are the way of the future. I am working on a wood net though so we can keep it somewhat classy. I may even have seats in it soon!

Got my spruce oars in from Canada last week. Finally got around to wrapping them. Looking forward to pulling these sweet sticks
