    Bridgeman, the original version and fascinating poster, moved to Florida a few years ago. That might be his boat though as he tried very hard to sell it everywhere before he moved to Florida.

    What would the value be on one of these boats? I know a guy that wants to sell one and I may buy it? His probably hasn't been in the water for 20 or more years but has been stored in a barn.

    I know the guy that bought bridgemans boat. It is still here in northern Kentucky. The guy collects those style boats. I am hoping to hunt with him out of that boat this fall. It will be a cool experience to get to shoot out of the boat that I have read so many stories about. Bridgeman always made you feel like you were with him on the hunt. All the way to the last sip of coffee and cookie.
