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

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
