TWO NEW AQUISITIONS FOR FUTURE DUCK HUNTING

Postby toolmaker » Sat Sep 07, 2013 1:29 pm

I picked up the 22 ft starcraft V5 holiday two weeks ago down in NC. it is stripped and ready for a new floor and transom...96" beam!!!! ubber deep!! closed bow...for those brutal quick storms that pop up on the atlantic while seaduck hunting. and I picked up the old classic heters GOOSE-DUCK fiberglass skiff close to home here two days ago......its about 100 lbs...nice little marsh boat....oar locks...going to throw a quick flat green paint job on it today, then next summer Ill soda blast it all and refurb it to 100%.

Nice Tool,

That little herters looks cool. Never seen one before. Is it flat bottomed or more canoe like?

like a canoe...but the middle 12" is flat......so it looks like it will be super stable..it is like 4ft wide!

you can the rounded chine in this pix, where i just finnished a rattle can paint job so it will blend into green vegaetation

Nice. looks like a jon smashed with a canoe. The predecessor to the gheeno. it should paddle good with a kayack paddle probably. Looks like it has some nice handles moulded in.

Yikes, you should open a marina. Hey, do you want a used Yammie 200 that's running like caca?
