That's a thing of beauty ColdFeet!
Thank ya kindly
Looks too pretty to cover up.
This one is experimental (working on the mold) and (not as good in person) ducks won't care. The next one will be book matched with a bright finish. Looking at doing an Easy B from Duck Works
Hope I'm not too late to the party as I just ordered a set of plans. Reading through the thread picking up some ideas.
All I needed was a little boat with a shallow draft to float a handicapped hunting buddy to a little island to ambush quackers.
Not too late, Friday will be my first hunt out of the one I built earlier this year.
Hope to get blood on it Saturday
What a beautiful job on that boat. Hope you got some blood on it.
Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and joined because I would love some advice for my first time build. I've read a lot of these 544 pages and have learned quite a bit (although too bad most of the photos won't load anymore).
Anyway I would like to build the Hybrid NL with a dog box. I'm 6'4" 220lbs and the dog will be about 60lbs full grown and I will only hunt alone + dog. I plan on running either a 30lb thrust Minn Kota with a smaller battery (I don't go too far and don't want too much extra weight) or maybe buying a 2.3HP Honda (we'll see how much money I have left after the build). I usually hunt with only a dozen decoys. I also plan on making it a SUV topper so would love to keep the weight down so I can mount it solo.
My questions are:
1. What would be a reasonable length, keeping in mind I would like to keep it as light as possible but be able to lay down with the dog behind me.
2. Does squaring the nose a bit provide more foot room or does it not make a difference?
3. Would pods be advantageous for this scenario or not necessary? I've read mixed reviews on whether they increase stability or if they only help with weight distribution.
Any insights from you veterans would be appreciated.
