The colors are amazing when you can capture them underwater when they are all lit up, kinda of like a bill fish when it is all lit up.

Our little Mini performed very well again on my wife's Caribou hunt. She was successful with a nice Bull on day one of a 6 day hunt. Sure is fun ripping by all the big boats that can not run down through the boulders and white water of this particular river, and then back up with a nice set of Antlers and bags of meat on the Mini and to see the look on all the faces of the guys in the big boats. Of course we wish them all luck and good fortunes to fill their freezers, but there is something satisfying about knowing that you built your own boat and it works just as you intended it to. :Drink:

Been having such an amazing winter with so many deep powder days I had to put a mini video together from some footage from last summer to remember how much I love summer as well. :Drink:

Some footage from last summer in the new river pickup with a buddy and his wife with the same boat. Got the mini wet yesterday. Of course the Yamaha started right up after her long hibernation. Wish everything was as dependable as a Yamaha. We were hoping to get a few more sled sessions in as there is still lots of snow up high, but it just keep snowing and Mother Nature is not giving us a clear day to go get it. I guess in the mean time we will just have to start playing in our boats.
