Goodluck Waldo! You know if you are coming over this season yet????

I may be interested in that layout tbduck, however I'm pretty nervous about proto type anything as it is well to see if they can improve on it. If you have a picture of it, could you send it my way, I may have to save up a little as I was think that if I built one, I could pretty much by it piece by piece. Welcome to this site, btw.

To me it is an unproven product in waves 1,2,3,4' I'm sure it is a fine product and works great in waters similar to where it was developed, but I would not put my life on the line in a boat that has not spent many many hours in rougher water. Any boat that has a spray sheild as an "option" would scare me.
I think the UFO guy went out of business due to some shady circumstances. Search on Great Lakes Waterfowler for more.
I've hunted out of Bankes and MLB layouts in rough water and feel confident with both.
Again, not a knock against LB boats, I would just not feel safe hunting out of something that was developed on water that is like glass. I feel much more comfortable in a boat that has been proven in rough water already. If we had to wait for <1' waves, we'd never hunt. We are usually out in 1-3' every day.
