New to duck hunting need to build layout boat.

Postby Tspoon21 » Tue Nov 12, 2013 4:01 pm

I am going to start duck hunting this year. I have a 10ft Jon boat I want to use for a layout boat an to go up the roads that flood. I have a 5hp B&S motor I want to use for a longtail. Is it cheaper to buy a kit or can I build one for less thin they ask for the kits? Any help would be appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!!

I don't know much on MM's, but there are several threads on here if you search. Are we to assume this is a horizontal b&s? Also you do not give your construction abilities... can you fab metal? weld? I'm just guessing but if you search you can find plans and if you can weld, you can likely build one that will work cheaper than buying one. If you can't weld you then likely need to buy one all made up.
