Broken duck floaters into field decoys.

I had some decoys break on me last year. They wouldn't float any longer. They aren't completely done yet. What you think?

For you guys with photo posting issues, try using an image hosting website. I use photobucket, it's simple and easy.
I need about tree fiddy.

Look great! A buddy and I are currently working on quite a few ducks and geese that don't float anymore and turning them into what you did!

I cut the keels off and drill a hole in the back. I have a metal stake with a small nut threaded about a half inch down i put the stake in the ground and put the decoy on top so the nut holds the duck up on the stake.
