    This is interesting.

    From Ro Drift Boats’ Facebook page:

    This weekend a Tan bottom with Evergreen sides Deville was sunk on the Yellowstone river on the town stretch. The boat sank on 8/31 and after an unsuccessful attempt at removing the boat from the river it was left for 2 nights (Sunday, Monday). The boat has since been removed by someone or dislodged further down stream. If anyone has any information on where this boat may be please call 406-641-0011 or 406-570-7556. Any information is appreciated. FYI this is considered theft. There are NO salvage rights on Montana rivers.

    Zach, if I remember correctly, it is also a crime to leave it in the river. If it was not hung up in a snag, I would think it is on its way to Billings. Most likely in many pieces.

    PS: Wasn’t me either. Any action taken by a fishermen that results in time lost from the bow casting position, is a bad idea!
