Glen and Bessie Hyde’s 1928 Sweep Scow

Perhaps the worst idea of my life was to replicate the Hydes’ 1928 sweep scow for their ill-fated Grand Canyon trip. And then attempt to run Grand Canyon in it with my then wife. At least we came out alive. Built in 1996, but I am not sure I can call it a boat. We nicknamed her Driftwood Struggling. (See Sunk Without a Sound.)
