What exactly do you do with it. We dont have anything like that around here. I see you guys talking about layouts all the time. Just curios.

Why I like this style is you don’t need a tender boat I hunt on Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence and I can hunt small creeks, it draws 5” of water I mostly use them on big water for divers. Some times I will tow it to a place and drop off someone in one, then take my big boat and go elsewhere to hunt. What I like is you can row anywhere you want, you don’t need a tender boat baby-sitting you. Some times I trailer them to the lake and just row to where I want to hunt. They work great :thumbsup:

Pirogue's aren't meant to handle the water that layouts are. Layouts seam to be kind of unique to the great lakes. I know guys who'll be out in one way offshore with three foot waves coming in to shoot divers. Usually they put out two layouts, and then the guys in the layouts and the guys in the tenders take turns.

The boat looks great.
