I didn't know you hunted goose too! I thought you were a die-hard ducker. Do you ever see geese on the bay?

used to hunt them hard years ago, but it got too easy, had a really great spot, but now my son wants to get into them, plus i got a really great deal on those 18 floaters, traded a canvasback i carved to a friend for them, dont see many on the bay, and when i do they are usually high and moving fast, but i live on the delaware river, and there are quite a few on there, plus a res i live close to has a good population, but yes, i am a hard core ducker, specially divers, love huntin the big water

Living on the Delaware? Now that's the life!
Could I ask what brand of paint you used on that boat? I'm getting ready to paint my new/old duck boat but haven't decided how. I have rust-o-leum aluminum primer but haven't used it yet. I'm sanded mostly down to bare metal now

i used all cans of spray, krylon grey primer first, then the krylon camo paints, only took about 6 cans total, believe it or not, i keep a can around for touch up, but my boat takes quite a beating, delaware is really rocky by me, and the bay gives it quite a beating, and it has held up really well., next i want to do the inside deck with that roll on rhino liner, i just found a co on line that has it in outdoor colors, but it's 75 a gallon.
That rust 0leum primer should work well, the biggest thing is that it's clean, and give it a few coats of primer. I dont live right on the water, but about a 1/4 mile away, but it aint bad, about 25 min drive to my hunting spot for the north zone up at the gap. heading up next week to start scouting for sept goose

You are ready crew, feeling the itch myself. You need to get your divers ready for December/January on the bay or twin rivers.

Well I ripped out the rotten wooden seats in my latest boat project and made new ones. The hull is primed with rust-o-oleum aluminum primer. Looks kinda nice all gray.
I'm going to paint the boat with 100% acrylic exterior paint....valspar duramax. I know it isn't meant for boats but it is supposed to last "a lifetime". I'll be happy with 2-3 seasons....even if I have to touch it up once in awhile.
About the only paint I found intended for duck-boats is Parkers but it's very expensive to ship to me.
I'll do the Krylon camo thing over the Valspar and see what happens. Should be fun.
Then I need to build ANOTHER blind for this boat....a whole new can of worms

Working on the divers as we speak, just about done with those, not that i dont like hunting puddlers, but divers are my passion, just something about those big waves and big water

Yes, I agree, the smell of salt,marsh,mud and the chance for a bluebill or Can all the while looking out for my Fav, a black duck. I am hoping for some cold and ICE this year.
Yea, that would be nice, we had one week of really cold last year up on the delaware, had to push the boat across 30' feet of ice to launch, getting it reloaded, well, i wont even say how that went, oh, what we wont do to duck hunt, i cant remember how many times i sat in myt boat in the bay last season with a camo t-shirt on and sweat dripping off my nose

If ever ready to get rid of those canadians let me know.
Hunt on the other side of the bay from you and my kids love watching those big birds come into the decoys but don't have very many. too expensive for my wallet.

Yea, i know what you mean, 99.00 for four, thats crazy, i got lucky, a friend bought them but never uses them, so i carved him a decoy and traded for them. i think i got the better of that deal, got 20 of them for one hen can carving.
