    Look great they are very popular here on the Chesapeake bay.

    Our water in the upper Chesapeake is a grayish-brown color all the time now.

    Looking good, but the black does seem pretty visible. I used flat gray - worked nice for the water I hunt. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like the same color I used. Rustoleum primer?

    Tremclad Flat Gray, Paint and Primer, I use it as the base layer on most of my decoys. Brush on, not spray. Pretty sure Tremclad/Rustoleum are the same thing just regional names.

    My senior hunting partner said when he started out, 60+ years ago…..
    He said they would paint the arms in random patterns of grey, dirty brown, with white lines painted on them ( to resemble “whitecaps” or ripples).

    He said he was giving that advice by some old timers.

    I honestly don’t know, but I have been debating making a few sets for a couple years now for use out on the lake.

    I did these ones with the grey boards. More hens on these ones.

    That gray looks good. I like that you have at least 1 hen on each set. Have you floated them to see how the boards look?
