The way your luck is running you may be better off buying one.
I'd hate to see a post with a left hand missing fingers :lol:

Just joking ...
If you decide to build I'll send some plans your way.

Ive been looking at those but they dont look like they sit low enough in the water to really work for a layout. Maybe im wrong, I dont know.

I've hunted out of these and the shipping to FL was fairly fast:

I hunted out of the small one-man boat and it was really stable. Paddling was pretty good, but not great. The only downfall is that it is a wide boat, so unlike a canoe the water isn't right next to you which is what makes a canoe so easy to paddle.

I can tell you one thing though. With these low profile layouts, the birds just don't see you. You'll have ringers and teal flying close enough to reach out and grab them. Very fun and effective.

your other option is a kayak. I have hunted out of this one. Its camo, and the wide mouth gives lots of room to move.

just another option

I have used it goose hunting on a river in Tn. snuck right up on them. It was unreal. They didnt even see me... till it was to late for them
