Duckhunter wooden boat?

Postby racksnquacks » Fri Aug 24, 2012 5:48 am

Has anyone ever built the duckhunter before? or hunted out of one before? Im thinking about building one before the season starts. One of the problems I could see is if I hit a stump or low spot I'd be worried about cracking the hull. Heres the link to check them out http://www.gatorboats.com/Duckhunter-Boat-Plans.htm
If it flies it dies, if its brown its down, i guess if it does anything else ill shoot that too

I have the plans for them but couldnt justify the cost of building one this year. I've been thinking about it for several years now. Just so you know the estimated material cost on the website is WAY off. your gonna spend $500 on the lumber and hardware alone plus resin and cloth and all the bells and whistles plus the tools you need.

I might get around to it next summer.

also before you order the plans all your getting is a few page print out on someones cheap printer. includes the longest run on sentence known to man for directions but with a little know how it can be built

I've got one that's about half built. Be sure your ready for this project. It's a lot of work and money.

Here's a link to my site, Toller Boatworks I've probably built 20 or so of them. No issues with wood on wood contact if built right. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I would love to build the DH2 (18 footer) or the NFZ from tollerboatworks. Are those plans available anywhere?

The DH2 is basically a proportional enlargement of ths DH while the NFZ is my design. Neither of which do i offer plans.

when enlarging the duckhunter proportionally, did you run the seams in the floor across the boat only? or did you run them across and lenth ways and just stagger the joints? Assuming you enlarged on the width as well as the length. thanks for any help.
