1. What are you powering that thing with ?
2. Do you hunt shallow water where you can wade and set all your decoys ? We hunt a cooling lake and I cant set my decoys from walking. Everything is strictly from the boat. I left my bow mount trolling motor on, 80# Thrust and use a 30# bow anchor with chain. I have been out where its been windy enough that the anchor wont hold. The blind becomes a big sailboat.
3. How are you covering the shooting openings ? Flip lids ?
Looks good, keep it posted

While I love the jumbo CSkiff for the bay and they are very common....that thing would never, ever work here as any kind of "duck boat."
That's not a dig at all....just back to my original point that it's neat to see what other people do...

I think you just made my point for me.....if it's too small for here.....how could it be good for there?
