Woodworker and avid fly fisherman, Chris Schoenberg of Third Coast Craftsman, is building himself a hybrid drift boat. He’s combining two designs to build himself a drifter that he can attach a motor to, expanding his options for boating on rivers and lakes in his home state of Michigan. Chris starts his first wooden boat build with some help from an experienced boatbuilder friend, but he’s no stranger to working with wood and epoxy. Chris is taking a page from our pal, Louis Sauzedde, and is giving us a series of videos about his build and is doing a nice job explaining and filming his work along the way. Chris is up to episode 3, so you can catch up quickly and see some good progress on the construction of his strong back, the keelson, and the transom. Enjoy!
