    I used to own a 16 foot wooden Eastside driftboat. It was my first river boat and was in rough shape so I spent a bunch of time cleaning it up, painting and repairing. Turned out looking pretty good. The boat was heavy to row and a little slow to manuver. Had to upgrade oars, broke one on the Sky, did a streamside repair and finished the drift. Now I use a aluminum Willie and carry an extra oar.
