After searching through all the wooden drift boat pictures I could find, I wasn't able to see exactly what I had in mind concerning a removable rear casting brace system. After weeks of fretting and obsessing, I designed my own plan. I wanted something that could go from a fly-fishing trip with a person in the front and back of the boat, to a whitewater float trip with minimal effort to change over. So, it had to be removable, light weight and comfortable. I have always been very picky on how my boat handles and works. So far, I am pleased with the outcome of my design. I will know more once this spring's steelhead season is underway. I have more pictures of the finished product on my page under the album titled Luke's Boat. I've really enjoyed this site and am pleased to now be a part of it. And, I've definitely learned a lot, especially since this is my first go 'round with a wooden boat. They say that my trusty old aluminum boat will acquire some dust once I run a wooden drift boat.
