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!

Ken

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
