    Awesome looking boat. I have hunted out of my buddies DW and we have been trolling with it this summer on Lake Michigan. You get a lot of goofy looks at the launch when everyone else has your typical salmon boats and we pull up with the 20ft Duckwater geared up with downriggers.

    I've been out on the big lake here in near 8fts and the Duckwater did just fine!

    Buddy is thinking about going bigger and selling his current one. I may just have to take it off his hands.

    I think my boat will be making an appearance at the Ohio waterfowlers boot camp before it goes home to PA according to Steve. Should be finished today or tomorrow I think.
