    I have a War Eagle 648. I’m looking at purchasing a Beavertail blind and I would like to know which size would be best. I hunt with a dog, and have a 25 hp outboard.

    Model 1600 or 1700?
    Pros/cons of both?

    Thanks

    Can't help you with sizing but I have a Beavertail that I like. It's on my 1852 and I think it is the biggest size. Fits well!

    I have a Lowe 1648 with 30hp Johnson and and have a 1600 on it and like the fit. When hunting one sits on the bench seat and the other two on folding chairs. image.jpeg

    1100 Remington Man did you drop the front down on purpose to get coverage for the back?

    I emailed Beavertail a few months ago asking about the appropriate size for my 1860, never heard anything back.

    No it sits level, it's just there leaning on it and the weight of the birds. Here is a older picture of it in action before I painted the boat.
