Duck Boat Transformation

Postby RPerez » Wed May 29, 2013 9:55 am

For the past few months my hunting Partner and I have been transforming a bass boat into a duck boat. We had to pretty much rip everything up and start from just the hull of the boat. Everything has been custom made on this boat from the floor, storage compartments, lights, and the switch panel. The motor is a 25 horsepower long tail from a previous boat.

We Hunt In South Florida mostly Lake O and the Everglades, although we do quite a lot of hunting in the STA's. Now the hard part is waiting until the season opens. Let me know what you think about the boat. Thanks, Robert

That's bad ass Perez. Good work on y'all's part. I wish I had that kind of ingenuity. I'm sure that will hunt great this year. Any plans to build a blind too?

We still haven't decided on what to do for the blind yet. I think me might just stick to palmetto branches, but you never know theirs still a long ways until the season gets here.
