Default Need a drift boat

Anyone know of a boat that needs a new home? Preferably an awesome boat someone bought and now has to dump for near nothing because life threw some horrible curve ball.

East Idaho or Montana Craigslist is your friend.

Don't like Hydes, but this seems like a decent deal: http://www.ksl.com/classifieds/listing/43178759

Yep, just trying here as well. Lots for sale but who Needs to sell. Before I drop 7500 on a used boat I figured I would see who has one.

Cody, have you found a boat yet? Here's one on CL right now that looks like it might be a good deal.

YVW! Thought it looked like a great boat at a pretty good price from what I've seen others going for! Good luck!

Cody, there is a drift boat for sale in Eagle. As you come off the highway you head east and just at the second roundabout there is a driftboat sitting in the parking lot that looks in decent shape. Not sure who owns it but you should be able to find one of the shops in town that will know.

Looks like a sweet deal, I've been wanting to get a drift boat ever since last summer. Of course, it would probably be prudent to start with a raft given that I would be bouncing it off of every single obstacle in the river.

Not to hijack your thread Cochise, but, does anyone have advice on how to get on the oars, or a ideal river to start out and in order to learn? I would imagine the NP through Wyoming would be fairly tame.

First, a lake. Start there. Dont start in a river. Learning how to backrow properly control, swing, angle and side row can all be done there. Second, think of taking a rowing class. Several of th outfitters offer rowing classes - and its in their boat so that makes it better.

As for tame river, I think your NP idea makes the most sense for that. you dont want to start on the Ark or the Colorado for sure..

Thanks for the advice! Something tells me that when I do pull the trigger on a raft I will have a lot more "friends" coming out of the woodwork!
