Hey guys, finished building this a while ago and thought I'd share. I've been thinking for a while about making a sled that was big enough to fill with decoys and tow behind a boat but small enough to drag across ice and snow. Being able to use it as a blind when you get out to your spot would be helpful too. What I came up with is kind of a hybrid between a coffin blind, pond box, ice sled, and mini jonboat-I'm calling it the super sled!
It's built with 1/4" underlayment, fiberglass, and epoxy, has an epoxy/graphite bottom for slickness and toughness, and weighs 45lbs according to my bathroom scale. 7 foot 3" long by 38" wide, inside coated with truck bed liner. It has 9" tall sides for being able to hunt in shallow water or flooded fields, and I'm thinking that if you throw a sheet of fast grass over it you should be able to make it disappear in very little cover.
It should be able to float a lot of weight, I'm working on a system for towing it with a longtail, hopefully this week I can get some photos of it in action!
Here it is loaded up with 2 dozen standard duck floaters, a dozen magnum divers, 4 Bigfoot goose floaters, a dozen goose shells, blind bag, decoy pole, and shotgun:
