Old wood boats near Rice?

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info about the old wooden boats near Rice MN on highway 10? I know that seems vague, but if you've ever driven past them or seen them, you'll know what

I'm talking about. I've always wanted to stop there and see if any are for sale, but was never quite sure on the situation. Thanks for any help!

The guy repairs the boats. I'd guess there's a pretty long waiting list as more seem to come in than go out. A very reliable source told me the guy has a deficient personality.

I have seen them also but if I was interested I would stop and ask. All he can do is say no.

Some are for sale, some are in for restoration. Stopped in years ago... but I was just nosin' around, I don't have the time for a wood boat, though there are few things as beautiful as a fully restored one.

Drove by there last night and noticed that one of the boats fell off it's 'blocks' and the bow nosed into the side of the neighboring craft... probably get a good deal on one of those two! grin.gif

Good Luck!

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
