I just went through this exercise and thought it maybe helpful to others. My goal was to build a roller with as much material readily available and minimize high cost materials and specialty skills.
The drawing is a sketch I made recently to plan the roller, bearing mounting and mounting. My roller is 54" Long.

Hey does anyone know where we can see the photos from the 2013 Mckenzie wood boat show, that were taken by the photographer with the underater camera and the ones from the diver at eagle rock Lodge.
Yep another first time builder. Starting on a Freestone Guide stitch and glue. I have been in the reading/research phase, trying to gain enough critical mass to even begin to know what questions to ask. I have begun aquiring materials and have a couple oars in progress. Since I have been following for a while (some beautiful boats folks) I thought I would stop and say hi and to also thank all of you for all the info you have already provided me.
I live in New England (Dover, NH) so…
Get up. Have some good coffee. Run your boat down to the Dersham's. Go back home and cook breakfast for your family and friends. Go down to the riverbank behind the cabin with your granddaughter and take pictures of wooden drift boats on a sunny day. Then spend the afternoon looking at great craftsmanship and meeting wonderful people. Top it off with a good friend getting a wonderful gift, and a great dinner with good friends, it really doesn't get much better.
Just posted some pics of the boats floating past our cabin at Eagle Rock Saturday, what a wonderful sight.

Grew up on the McKenzie watching the pioneer guides float by while I fished from the bank as a kid. As a retired yacht builder I have a hard time not having a boat project underway.
Anybody in the eastern Idaho/ southern Montana area? Give me a shout.

I was involved in a film two summers ago where we floated the Yellowstone River from Gardiner Montana to its confluence with the Missouri in North Dakota, nearly 700 miles. My woody and I and cast and crew made a cool environmental documentary film of the journey called "Where The Yellowstone Goes" You can watch it on itunes movies, or find a copy at www.wheretheyellowsonegoes.com

After a few years of chasing down a wooden drift boat here in southern Oregon I found my diamond in the rough. I have looked at Prichetts, Briggs, Steeles and others. Never could find the right one or Iwas always a day late. But that is another story. The one I found is a Rouge River Boat Shop mckenzie style drifter. The shop was owned by Jerry Briggs and I bought the boat from the original owner. It was built in 1971 and I'm glad I will be able to put it back floating the Rogue and other…Continue
