    Default 100nm in a Bolger Idaho, in Argentina

    This guy recently completed his Idaho - looks like it goes! Look at that tiny wake, too.

    Beautiful vid

    Idaho is one of Bolger's power sharpies, along with Tennessee, Wyoming, and Illinois. Idaho is 31'x5' - and apparently originally designed for Bernie Wolfard (who used to sell Bolger plans) and his wheelchair.

    I knew Bernie when I lived in Portland. The Idaho was indeed 100% wheelchair accessable--pretty cool!

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Amazing how little wake that boat leaves. Impressive video.

    I have often dreamed of building the similar but smaller Bolger Tennessee to cruise the rivers and canals of Europe...10 knots on 10 hp. Now I will have to dust off the plans and start dreaming again!
