A duck boat forum to discuss duck hunting boats, mud motors, and everything related.

I have been looking through dozens of posts and pictures on this forum and google images looking for some ideas on large camo patterns on duck boats. You all have some nice boats. I have stenciled boats before but I am looking at big patterns for breaking up my outline. I am getting ready to paint my boat and am not looking for fine detail in my pattern.
I know everyone has their own opinions about camo on duck boats. I'm not looking for a debate, I would just love to see some pics of your boat if you use a large camo pattern.
Any photos are greatly appreciated!

My boat was always dull green and I covered it with a blind. I never saw the need to paint the boat camo when it was covered by a blind. I do agree the large camo patterns are a better idea, but no camo is really needed with 2" or 3" of boat exposed at the water line.
If you want to paint it, this is a good design. paint beige first, then Grey and then black.

Scale up the Natural Gear pattern, that would be the ticket.

I'd just do a solid color and use natural brush to break up your out line. If you hunt a lot of open water is do more of a grey color than a green.
