Carstens Pintail is a duck killing machine
I have a County Line on order for this summer and really looking forward to the boat that Andy is going to make, 1444 layout boat should be an awesome rig.
Right now I have a 12' fiberglass over wood and a 4 Rivers Refuge Runner and going to sell the 12' once I receive the CL. I went with CL because of the aluminum, the boat should last me the rest of my lifetime so I went alittle bigger and a thicker hull too.
Poke Boats have stood the test of time. I thought they were over priced but some of these other boats are every bit as expensive.
Fatboy DP. I use a 3.3 hp Merc on it.
I have a Fatbot DP but they don't paddle worth a damn. If he wants a sneak boat I figure there is paddling involved?
FB’s lack a defined keelson and do paddle like a drunken sailor. A skeg type assembly attached to the stern helps immensely.
I re read the first post. He does want a motor so I guess a Fatboy DP would work. I only use mine as a layout, never put a motor on so no experience in that regard.
I havent been in any duck boat yet that paddles worth a damn. That includes Marsh rats and Aquapods. Maybe a pokeboat would? I dont think a 14 foot Country Line is a small boat either. They all have their uses, strengths and weaknesses. The DP is heavy and paddles like crap. But it hides well, is safe, can haul a ton of stuff and has room for my dog to sit behind me while I shoot. The day I took this picture, I paddled it 1.3 miles back to the boat ramp, loaded. I ran out of gas.
Yes, they have. I've owned mine for 30 years. It's allowed me to get a lot of ducks in trouble.
Who makes that suck duk decoy in your boat? Is that one from the Paul's Pond guy?
