The two paddles are the original paddles that were used with the boat when it was built. The cypress seats rests perfectlly on the two side stablizers which are white oak
We launched the boat on Legion Lake late Thursday afternoon and not a leak anywhere. The cat walk in the bottom of the boat is the original 1/2" white oak strips--in fact all the wood is original except for the ends which rotted away over the years.
The boat has three stablizers on the bottom which is attached with brass screws. The bottom is 1/4" marine plywood which is original. The stablizers help keep the boat more stable on the surface of the water
You know I can't go to Legion Lake without fishing--my brother with a slab crappie
Nice bass on my 9 ft. 4 wt. The black leg poppers are one leg up on all others poppers
