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.
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.
Looks incredible on the water. Great job!
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?
