Bentz Boats in the News

Bentz Boats on Facebook…

Killgore Adventures added 2 new photos.

This hasn't been done in nearly ONE HUNDRED YEARS!! Tag a friend who might enjoy this cool story and photo. These men are riding on horses from the Western border of Idaho at Pittsburg Landing in the center of Hells Canyon to the Eastern border of Idaho at Darby, Montana.

The itinerary allows for 12 days on the trail but they hope to complete the trail ride in 9 days. The route is to stay off roads as much as possible and stick to the trails only.

The first night on the trail was spent at our facilities, camping and stabling their horses for the night.

The photo with the 3 men: center is Brad Arnzen (Grangeville, ID), right (in red shirt), Rusty Bentz (brother of the late Daryl Bentz, Lewiston, ID), and his son Brandon Bentz (Boise) at far left. This is a group of 10 men that have been friends for many years sharing experiences while hunting, fishing, boating, camping, trail riding, and just being friends.

Others on the trail ride include: Fred Fridley, Harold Alexander, Rod Parks, Jay Fraizer, Ed Radtke, Rob Fabin, and Bryan Bentz (son of the late Daryl Bentz of Bentz Boats. Bryan continues to operate Bentz Boats in Lewiston, ID building outstanding jet boats which are sold in the US and internationally. Our own triple engine tour boat "Happy Hour" is a “Bentz Boats” that has served us well for many years.

We are so excited to hear about their journey, as we are sure they will have a lot of great stories by the end! #killgoreadventures

Karen GloverKaren and I were park at the top of Cold Springs Creek on the Milner Trail in our motor home and they road right by our camp Jeanie Tolcacher. It was very cool. Our Great Dane wanted to go with them, I think he was wondering where the giant Great Danes came from. Jerry glover

Kyle JeffreysSeeing a boat of that capacity is impressive and easy to see how the business has grown. Gives me pride in owning the original boat shop on Bryden and knowing some of the history from Rusty. Still finding things out there that make me wonder what they are and how they were used😃
