The drift boats are like the pickup trucks of river travel, easily holding 1,000 to 1,500 pounds of cargo. The experienced river folk take pride in how few oar strokes they use in a river run. However, shift of weight without rowing and edging a hard chine to nudge the boat are all parts of the game. For lighter sailboats, the concepts are not much different.
