Had a question.

Been looking into buying a drift boat. Would like to buy a kit and build it. Curious what you guys think about wooden boats vs. the synthetics like a Clacka or Hyde.

I'm interested in the Freestone Classic kit, 15'. I currently have a 13' Aire raft without a fishing frame. It's a good boat, overkill out here. But there isn't much need to worry about beating that thing up. Wondering how you guys with boats have faired over time at lower generation on some of these rivers. Do you get pretty beat up? Would a wooden boat be a bad idea?

They're just really good looking boats.
