Jmike - things are good. I'll be starting a new job at Intel in about 2 weeks and my schedule will allow a lot of time for hunting. :thumbsup:

i am interested in the skiff..maybe i can hook up with you and take a peek at yours in action. the price is certainly within my budget, but i am looking for a boat i can tow in and hunt the lower columbia with. i am thinking it is going to be a marsh rat or something similiar.

keep in touch..we gotta hook up at SI this year.
