Not sure on the brand but my layout boat was the best duck hunting investment I've made. If you ever hunt marshes they are the best way to get ultra close to the ducks in sparse cover. I would definitely pick it up for $200. Get a conduit bender and make some layout doors. There are several threads on making the doors just do a search. Good find.

Or an old fiberglass Marsh Rat. Either way $200 is cheap!

The back end looks strange almost like pods. Maybe homemade?
