Mid Summer update

We've been reaping some of the benefits of the long cold spring around these parts. The flows have remained pretty steady and water temps have been good as well. The fishing hasn't been red hot, but good enough to give it a go after work.

After a few months of finding the right motor and a tiller installation, the sled is now fully operational. She gets on plane extremely easy and is gonna be a great fly fishing boat. It's a 19.5 foot by 60 inch bottom made by Jerry's Marine out of Gold Beach, OR. They are the same folks who run the jet tours on the lower Rogue. Needless to say, they know how to put together a sled without overloading it with extra heavy gauge aluminum. The 90HP Yamaha two stroke jet that I found works great and gives me plenty of power. With a dry weight of only 260lb's, the motor keeps the package light and fit.
