i know a lot of diver duck hunters hunt out of layout boats with great success but i met a guy who hunted chesapeke bay out of a big game sport fishing yacht the outfitter doubles the use of the boat, and the hunters just sit in the fishing deck not wearing any camo and blast away as the ducks come by , i know they set up decoys but still, do diver ducks actually care about hunters and boats?

I hunted seaducks on the Chesapeake in a 24' ft. pontoon boat. We put Christmas trees on it early and then renewed them after Christmas. Used about 10 doz. oldsquaw decoys and 8 doz. bluebills. The ducks maybe were wary but they came into the decoys anyway.
The only place to hide was on the boat, no land toback up against.
