Thinking about putting a 12 footer on the bow of my 17.5 ft. Ocean Duckwater duck boat. It should help with putting out decoys, and pick up. Anchoring the boat in the blind location. It would be a lot easier to put out the robo, just spike the boat, put out the robo without having to worry about floating out of the spot. Lots of uses, seen a guide that had one on the bow of his boat. I'm sure it makes his guiding job a lot easier, not having to have a client trow out the anchor in the bow, knowing that the boat will stay put when you do spike it.
