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 I did want to see if there are any other Drift Boaters, builders, builder wanna be, etc in the area. I would love to hear from you. I am new to drift boats in general (One guided trip and one day learning how to paddle one with a guide, this is well worth it by the way). I have been a wood worker most of my life (I don't actually remember a time when I didn't have a tool or fishing pole in hand) and have the tools for the job.
So hello and I will be posting questions and progress for anyone interested.
