Looks like a Black Ops project rig!

Well done!

Hope you have two bilge pumps and plenty of battery power & built-in fuel storage?

That is really cool and thanks for all the pictures. Watching it all come together is nice.

Where I go the jon boat is king. Interesting to see other perspectives.

Have you tried setting your spread in a good wind? Might want to give it a go to see how an aluminum hull handles in the wind, both running and setting.

Marktank, The divers this season won't have a chance with that rig. Job well done! My craft looks very similar( a Duck Waters Ocean), we hunt the big waters in northern NY and love it. The cold and blowing, now thats hunting! Best of luck and be safe on those WS big waters.

It does handle good on a windy day. Closest I will come to a duckwater but it serves it's purpose and does the job good

Nice looking setup there. I have a 21' Starcraft Mariner project that is slowly taking shape. Gutted the interior and picked up the .125 aluminum sheets to do the floor, also rebuilding the transom with aluminum instead of wood and plan on running a side console instead of center to free up floor space a bit. Redesigning the splashwell for ease of getting in and out of a layout, I also plan on going with a cordura folding blind style instead of a hard style blind.
