I saw one on craigslist here in the greater boise area that looked interesting. I think it was an xpress boat but I can't rememeber. Do a search on 'camo boat'

First thing I did when I bought my boat was figure out what I really want to do with it. I knew I wanted to duck hunt with a blind on the boat. Where do you mostly want to hunt. (river, lakes, marshes). How many people will you be hunting with? Gear, which double the amount you think LOL. Is it just a duck boat or do you want to fish or fly fish out of the boat. Sit down and really think about what you want to truely use it for. Then start hunting for the boat. When I bought mine, I did this and have not been happier. I fish and hunt the rivers mostly and a jet does great. It has gotten me around Mud lake but can be tough to get up and going in really low water. I hunt alone so weight of the boat was a big one. Need to be able to move boat around by ones self. I have a blind on mine and when duck hunting ends and there is nothing else better to do but fish I put the oars on and fish the snake and the South Fork. I have a 16ft lowe roughneck with a 90hp jet. I have a side counsle that allows me to put my blind up. The boat was lighter then most and allows me to pole around in shallow water. It is also light enought to row for fly fishing. Little heavy but my wife and can move it around. My advice is figure out what you really want to do then start breaking it down. Thats my two bits.

Thanks for the info guys probably going to look after the season for a 1860 sc with a 90/65 jet will spend 90% of its time duck hunting maybe a little time fishing.
