Me and my buddy have sneakboxes that are completely grasses would we be able to layout in them for divers pictures of your set ups would be great

If I were going to use a sneakbox as a layout I'd leave the grass off and just use it bare. They have low freeboard and are largely decked over. Might not be as effective as a regular layout boat, but divers aren't very wary over open water. We often decoy birds into our rigs while we are setting up or picking up. I've seen pictures of sneakboxes being used just this way for sea ducks. Just stay down as low as possible.
