I'm still trying to decide what i want to push mine with.....?? Outboard or high lb thrust trolling motor. Pros and cons both ways.....want the outboard for the speed, but don't like it because of weight and how high it will stick up......want the troller because it will conseal easily, but don't like it because of less power, and don't want to take up room in the hull with a battery.
If you can back it into the edge of some cover or even a sloped hill with vegetation, you can dissapear pretty good. Damn ducks didn't even know I was there. I can't get out of the boat where I hunt with this thing but heres the dog bringing back a bird on the same type of bank I set up on.
and here's what it looks like when you are in the shade in your boat on the west side of that slope in the am:
The area I'm in is a tidal slough. sometimes I can drive up to the bank, other times its 15 feet of the worst mud (sink to your sack) you've ever been in. The wheels don't really help when driving through the mud but a good push pole and some patience pay their dividends. I haven't had to wait for the tide to come back in yet!
Also, how the long the tail is helps with using it as a lever and man-handling your boat into and out of position. I wish I could take the wheels off of it but I sorta need em for all the different areas I hunt and their associated launches.
