You're gonna put a dog in the peddle-boat? So, yourself, a dog, decoys, blind bag, gun, a blind on top...anything else? Are you using this in a small pond in the back yard or somewhere with a fair amount of distance to cover? How does the peddle-boat work in shallow muddy/weedy water? Is there a current you'd have to peddle against? Wind? Won't the thing try to go in circles with only one guy peddling on one side?
