I'd like to ask readers who have built, bought or commissioned a Bolger boat to send me an email with your story and some photos. I'd like to do a small tribute to a great designer in this way as Phil worked so often with home builders in mind. Please send your stuff via email, available on the right.
Bill Samson, a former editor of The Chebacco News and home builder of Bolger boats, as well as an avid skin on frame kayak builder, built the Chebacco seen above. Bill and I met through the Qajaq USA Greenland Forum and let me tell you, this man is a prolific boatbuilder (there are more of Bill's Bolger boats and a reminiscence for later).
Send me your stories, and a couple of photos.
Michael Bogoger, aka DoryMan, wrote me suggesting I include designers influenced by Phil Bolger, and I agree! An oversight on my part.
Let me hear from you!
