However; the Mackenzie Drift Boat-style is designed to address much more complicated environments than most tailwaters. That is one of the primary reasons I have designed my own boat. I wanted a boat that is more practical for the tailwaters. Also; I want it to do what I want to do when I want to do it...I want to maximize the fishing experience and minimize the effort/detraction.

Plus, these boats are pretty darn simple to design and build. It is the legal process that keeps most people out of the boat building market.

Hopefully, I can get my product out to people who have expressed interest. In the initial phase; I may have to build a few kit boats or hobby boats to use for R&D.

Sorry Rod...I did not mean to hijack your thread.

I admire your ethical approach to boating and fishing on tailwaters. I also think it's cool that you are desgning a different boat for fishing these rivers. I wish you the best of success in this venture. Maybe one day, I'll be able to afford a boat
