Dutch (Adam Gottschling) of Jackson Wyoming strikes again! He has become the restoration expert in returning vintage McKenzies to usable condition; the go-to guy for many vintage drift boat aficionados. He has restored the original Trapper, and his hands have resurrected Kaarhus, Hindman and Ostrem boats.
Notice the weep holes inside the hatch. Keith's weeping style, unusual for a decked and compartmentalized dory. Interestingly, these boats are not among Keith's records. Son Steve says his dad was upset about building them, so there's got be an intersting back-story here. Could it be tied to Keith's aborted delivery to Litton?
Kudos to Dutch. His reputation exceeds the boundaries of Wyoming, and it was Curt Chang (O.A.R.S)who heard of Dutch, and made the intitial contact.
