Plans to build the 14' Canadian Drift Boat
One of my customers liked the Yukon a lot but wanted something a bit smaller for his use. He lives in central Canada so that's how this boat got its name. It is optimized for the fast Midwestern rivers like the Yukon and Ozark Fisherman with a bit less rocker and lower sides. These boats are ideal for fishing fast moving rivers and easily beaching and hopping out for shore fishing, camping or exploring.

About Midwestern Style Drift Boats
Midwestern style drift boats have a little less rocker than western types. This makes them row more easily and allow them to be more manageable in calmer water, while maintaining their whitewater capable characteristics. The sides are also a bit lower making it easier to beach, hop out and fish when you feel like it.
If you want to use the boat in a variety of situations - whitewater and calm water, fishing from the boat and fishing from shore, drifting downstream and rowing back up, a Midwestern drift boat is for you.
