Event Description

Announcing the 7th Annual McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival. To the best of my knowledge the events will be the same as previous years. However Randy Dersham and Greg Hatten are on the Colorado River so I cannot yet confirm all details. If things change watch for posts here.

Retire? I tried that. The paychecks dried right up. I hope to try it again in about 10 or 15 years, but 'til then, I'll mostly be on the Colorado during working hours.

Like a lot of Oregon drift boats, the Julius has a lot out front of the boatman. Here is a shot of Buzz in the original. The boat handles like a dream.

Hard to admire the lines under all that brown water, but looks amazing.  How is it to row?  Seems like a lot of boat up front.

Brad, you will just have to retire! Spend your time building boats and touring all the western rivers. Hope we get to see you at one of these festivals!

I'll be rowing the lapstrake Holmstrom replica through Lava Falls on the 28th, so I don't think I can make it.
