Well, it looks like the first order of business would be to saw up some boards, and build a bigger skiff. ::)  You could even build a barge to haul the logs home.
HEY! Anybody know of a way to put a prop on a Stihl .090, so this guy don't have to buy another motor? :D :D

Around here, any small outboard powered boat is a skiff.  They range anywhere from 8 foot with 5 horse to 36 foot fishing skiffs with twin 100 horsepower outboards.  They go fast enough that when you hit a chunk of wood in the water, it explains why they call them sunkers  
As for mounting a prop on a motor, my buddy has a prop stuck on a 6foot shaft directly connected to a 16 horse v-twin Briggs and Stratton motor on his 16 foot flat-bottom jon-boat.  It don't go very fast, but it'll run in 6 inches of water with he and I in it.
a barge is definitely on my list of things to build.  acourse, then I'm gonna need some way of getting those logs out ot the water onto the barge... always more engineering.  :)

Why not build a "pontoon barge"?  Just a couple of pontoons with a porous deck between them.  Partially flood the pontoons to lower the deck below the floating log, back under it, and pump the water out. Now you gotta find a way to run a pump with your saw. :D :D :D :D

A floating drydock :o :o
plastic 55gal drums, box em in and hang a deck between lines of them.  Pumps are no problem.  With all the boats around here, and the fact that anybody outside the city limits has to catch rainwater and pump their own, pumps are no problem.

Well, there goes my nights sleep :) I gotta go find some graph paper and my pencil.  I go work to do.. :P :P :P

HEY BRUCE,
I think I saw just the thing the other day on EBay:

"Stihl mod. 090-G-PTO chain saw.  Imagine the advantages: power take-off, flexible drive shaft and clamping system.  Will power boat propeller, pump, or mountain bike.  Caution:  Seller assumes no liability for injuries, should user become wrapped around exposed parts."
Har, Harr, Harrr!

Bruce, welcome to the forum.  We need people with a sense of humor. :D  Of course, you may need thick skin from time to time.

Sorry, I can not help you with the Logosol question, but there will be plenty of folks here who can help. 8)

P.S. You know, I bet salmon would go good with grits! ;D
