Final Attack?

Postby Goose Getter » Wed Jun 18, 2014 7:01 pm

For those of you guys that a have Final Attack layout boat I have a few questions. Is it really as bad as I've read about paddling it? I'm not going to use a motor, so that is not an option. I want to stay with a roto-molded set up, so this is where I'd like to start unless it's really that bad.

Everyone has their own threshold of tolerance for things like this. Get one and find out for yourself....that's the only way to arrive at the answer to your question. Good luck.

Just curious if you got one yet and if so how do you like it?. I'm considering a few different layout boat options including the Final Attack and the Phantom.

My buddy just bought one and I will be too. We tested it out today.... You can stand up and paddle in it without rolling. It will not move as easy as a kayak or be as fats but for are wants/needs it is.

Thanks for the information. I was curious about how stable it was. I'm not really looking for transportation, more for a layout blind hunting low cover in 1 to 3 feet of water. Sound like it might be the ticket.

Thanks again.

He stood up right and use a boat paddle. So laying down/shooting will not be a issue. It is roomy also!

I guess you need to decide, how far will you be paddling and against wind or current.

If you are in a pond or flat back water and not going very far the limitations of its hull shape will not bother you. If you are going to be paddling longer distances you might want to get a kayak. Then if paddling in the wind on open water, you might want a rudder for said kayak. I'm not discussion various kayak options unless you want to go that route.

I have one and used the longest kayak paddle I could find. I had a short one and kept hitting my knuckles one the side. Other than that it is super easy and great to hunt out of

I have a final attack and like it. It isn't the best for paddling but if your going a short distance you will be fine. I use a 55lb thrust trolling motor or a 5.5 hp swamp runner mud motor depending on where I am hunting. For long distances I use the mud motor n for short distances I use the trolling motor. Good luck final attacks r good little boats n pretty darn stable for the price.

They suck to paddle especially if you have blind doors on it . That's why I built a 3hp mud motor for mine.

It's not a Final attack, but I hunt with a dog in my kayak which is a Ride 135 and very stable. The back tankwell is perfectly suited for the dog during the hunt.

This picture shows her in the "Dog House" I built over the tankwell before adding raffia to it. She comes in the back and jumps out either side from the front.

I'd be wearing my dog like a hairpiece if I put him behind me like that .

bwhahaha

I was thinking the same thing.. She uses the last 6 inches of her dog stand and is constantly leaning forward.

My girl is only 60# or just under it. She can look over my shoulder while I am laying down, or lays down and her head lays off one side to watch for action. She has even learned she can turn around inside and look out the back end where she has more room. The little girl can turn around inside the full height GHG dog blind too. My last 95# lab had to army crawl into that blind.
