Default 14' Wooden Driftboat/Trailer/Oars for Sale - Belgrade

14' Framed Wood Driftboat/trailer and oars - $2,000.00 OBO

I bought this boat in Seattle about 3 years ago and completely tore it all down (removed all seats and upper railing) and sanded the boat to bare wood. I removed all rotted wood and either replaced with new or filled in minor holes with marine grade epoxy wood filler. Once all rotted wood was replaced the boat was covered (inside and out) with two coats of clear penetrating epoxy sealer and then painted or varnished. The plywood side on the right front of the boat is starting to check a I was going to sand the paint off this spring and then fill in the checking with epoxy but I just bought another driftboat and won't have time to do this. I'll be sad to see this one go but it is quite hard to convince the wife that I need two driftboats and that they both need to be parked in the garage while her car sits outside. I used this boat mainly to float the Skykomish River outside of Seattle for Salmon/Steelhead, the Yakima in Ellensburg, WA, Yellowstone, Lower and Upper Madison here in Bozeman.

-new interlux brightsides paint 2 years ago
-fresh coat of interlux varnish over interior and exterior chine rail (last spring)
-chines are in great shape
-bottom was fiberglassed sometime ago
-seats up to 4 people
-storage under front seat
-two 9' oars - they work but was planning on upgrading this spring
-EZ Loader 1989 trailer - is in pretty good shape, bearings were packed at the end of last summer
-unused spare tire
-the boat is ready to float right now!

Please e-mail ( with any questions....I have a ton of pictures of the repair processes with before/after pictures. The boat is solid!

Thanks, Josh
