'The Quack Pearl'

Well here's some shots of the new rig. I finally got it to where I want it, for this year anyway.

This is what she looked like when I picked her up.

This is her with a new 'big water' paint job!

The new Nat-Gear blind up.

Sitting all stealthy against the rocks.

And some birds to boot!

Thats awesome those sea ducks must be awful dumb.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

Nice boat, a big improvement over the one I seen in "Surf & Turf", can hardly wait for your next video. :thumbsup:

nice job on the paint, What did you do to prep the gel coat to accept the paint? How is it holding up?

Thanks guys! :thumbsup:

Yes

What did you do to prep the gel coat to accept the paint? How is it holding up?

I used a palm sander with 100 grit. Then I wiped it down with a rag using paint thinner to clean the surface. She seems to be holding up pretty good!

what kind of boat is it?(who makes it)

It is a 2002 21' TDB

what kind of eider decoys do you boy's use??

At the moment I run Carry-lite eiders and hand painted scoter.

Thats awesome those sea ducks must be awful dumb.

Not sure what you mean buy that, but ok.
