A Classic Wood Boat

I was looking on Craigslist for garage sales in the area and came across a post that had a drift boat for sale. With no intention of buying a boat I decide to take a look anyway, to see if there's something we need.
She was resting in the back of the yard among barrels of garbage, broken down cars, rusty jet boats that hadn't been on the water in years. She had no sign of leakage or abuse just needed a little TLC. The seller, not a fisherman at all, if fact, afraid of the water. He bought the boat from his daughter to help her get a little extra money to move. The price was right and heck she will make a fantastic John Day ride. As Marty said "you can't have to many boats." Another addition to the Little Creek fleet, number nine.
