Splashed boat on Saturday! Wow am i a happy camper! Thanks to Matt for a great design. Big thanks to TxRiverRat for posting his story about the TV. Tracks staight, turns easy, and seems fast and is also very stable - easy stand up. Using the 6mm okume made it a little heavier than I wanted at 53 lbs - built to last as they say I guess.

Good looking boat!

Look like you're sitting nice and high and still stable.

very stable. standing up in it is easy - even for me. It really is amazing. I bet it would paddle well with stand up blade or pushpole.

Putting in some hole for rod holders - might double as holders for boat blind in the fall.

Yep, top job. It's going to be almost invisible in those reeds.

So what will you be stalking and what with - camera or gun?
Cheers, Bob

Mostly woodducks down here in SC in the swamps - usually hunting but I would probably bring more home with a camera. :)
