I figured I would break in the new section by asking everyone to post what boats you all have? Fishing, hunting, skiing, it doesn't matter.

I have a 12' Deep V Valco aluminum boat with a 10horse johnson. The boat is pretty wide and sturdy for a 12 footer, it can handle 3 guys with gear and you don't get wet in rought water. It is the nicest 12 footer I have ever seen. I got the boat, motor, trailor and electric motor for $400...

I plan on getting a 19' Lund fishing boat someday when I run into a deal.

We have a 10 ft flat bottom jon boat that we bought for a dollar. We camoed it and have a trolling motor for it. Great for fishing ponds, and small lakes. Great on our small marshes here too. Need to find a way to stablize it so it is safe shooting out of though.

got a 16' john boat with a 40 on it, just got it and completley rebuilt the transom and put a new center console in it, it's almost done, we need to get a blind for it still, and I'd like to put a 80 hp on it, but finding one that's not a 70's that's not too expensive is proving difficult.

I got a 12ft jon boat for free and have to fix some hole lol but it will work for some small holes that I hunt. Looking to buy a 19ft lowe with a 90 on it soon ( big boat for the river/Misouri river)

I have a 16' alumcraft with a 70' beam, this thing is a tank!!!!!!! I have a 25 horse motor on the back of it, just really doesn't do the justice I need a mud motor.. I have a homemade built blind on it, covered in quack grass that looks sweet.......... I just have to get up extra early to make sure I get to my blind on time, b/c the motor blows... If anyone has any leads on a mud motor let me know. Thanks for reading, and good luck to all you duck hunters. :salude:

I've got a 14' wide Smokercraft with 93 Merc 25 HP motor on it with a home built pop up type of blind on it. I need a 35 hp on it, as I can barely plane with it with my 9 dz Smags and dawg in the boat. Yes and the boat is como colored and so is the custom blind material so I can hide in the Cattails slough up here.

I have the same thing as ks_waterfowler, I am planning on repainting it and making a blind for it. I have a trolling motor for it and it goes pretty good for that little motor. I plan on using it sometime this year I haven't used it for hunting yet.

I have a new 14ft War Eagle with a 9 hp. Mud Buddy. The boat is all open which allows me to throw 4 dozen decoys and 3 people with gear no problem. The boat is somewhat light for a welded boat which comes in handy for heaving over *****. The boat is great for shallow waters and goes through everything. I love driving past the guys with the little outboard motors either pushing there boats or un-tangling there props. One huge disadvantage is the mud style motors aren't as efficent in deep water (meaning they are very slow) mine is any how. :salude:

Mine is a 23ft' Wareagle 2372 LDSV w/an Avery blind. The motor is a Mercury 75 optimax, also have a little Mercury 5 horse on it for picking up and setting out decoys, etc.. I'm positive I've already posted on this topic...maybe I'm going nuts!
