Four Rivers EBADS for Tidal Wetlands?

Postby K Williams » Tue Oct 22, 2013 7:45 am

Would the Four Rivers E.B.A.D.S. layout boat be good for the tidal wetlands of Long Island, NY? Would it be able to handle the current with a 9.9hp motor? Thanks.

I don't know tidal water but I run a 9.9 outboard on my ebads and I'm running 23 mph at quarter throttle up current in the river. The river is a slow current but still there. I think it the boat would move well thru some good current.

To double your HP in a motor takes twice the weight and money. That boat weights a ton, at todays gas prices, figure it out.

Don't forget to consider the weight of the boat in the equation. If you ever have to pull the boat on the shore because of low tide, you should consider a 13' layout boat like the refuge runner or the Momarsh DP. EBADS would be a good choice if your hunting spot is far.

I hunt tidal wetlands and I am very happy with my Momarsh DP .

Well,
It's about main facts to consider when buying or building a duck boat. Often overlooked by other lesser considerations. Happy now?

I agree, that Ebads weights a ton, they weight a lot because it is easy to manufacture. If you want to see a work of art in duck boats, look at a x-13 Sportspal.
