Hey ya'll! This is the hunter formerly known as kentcallahan. I caught so much grief at the disabled hunt that I changed my name. Anyway, I'm thinking about buying a layout boat for small water, and wondered if anybody had any reccomendations. I would appreciate any input. Thanks!

Like your new name and I must say.... I agree :thumbsup:
You may want to check out the Otter line of duck boats. I have a 1200 and love it, they also have several versions of that line of boats. I guess, with you son being along"two man" would be in order :huh: Good Luck in you search, take you time, lot's to choose from :wink:

Hey kent have you looked at any of the plans to build a sneak boat?Most dont look like theyd be all that tough and most seem easy enough to modify to get the best features out of all of them :thumbsup: .....Ive been looking/thinking,as my boat fund was just reset to$0 :yes:

No I haven't, but thought about that yesterday. My problem is I'm about as handy as your average third grader. I will still look, though. There might be something even a clutz can do. Let me know what you find. Later!

I have a DU Rag May/June 1986 that features a article called "From Derelict to Duckboat" by Larry Nickel - with new duckboats ranging in price from $800. to $2,800, you might consider converting an old rowboat, sailboat or runabout instead.
Junk fiberglass boats can be found a dime a dz. . The hull is good so all you would need to do is to cut the top half off and build a watertight top that grass can be added to it .
Here it is but not sure how it will come out .
