I am so sorry you lost a good friend. May he RIP.

So did this boat sink? Is it parked in a barn somewhere?

My condolences vintagedude. Godspeed Kyle.

This is my favorite thread anywhere. Thanks so much for sharing.
I'm brand new to jet boats so don't listen to anything I say.

Hello

Somehow I think it possibly may have sunk, but not absolutely sure. Clearly Norm Riddle is at the helm. It is possibly the KAMIAKIN, if one could find a picture of that boat, and compare photos to confirm. He named it the Kamiakin after a local Native American leader of the Palouse, Yakima and Klickitat regions. He told me one time, it was in the spirit of the Sacajawea, which of course was Lewis and Clarks guide on their expedition. Aptly named for the region.
