Re: Historic Wooldridge Pictures

Some snap shots of Glen Sr test running an early aluminum boat, before heading up to run the powerful Hells Gate on the Fraser River. Glen fitted the 21’ sled with twin Mercury 85hp with Outboard Jets. He was 79 years old! https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/KqPx0h.jpg https://imagizer...

Re: Catchin' some fish in an alloy boat

Hadn't fished for them in about 20 years give or take. After spending the day trying for them I can honestly say I think th...
