Quality How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need? This boat is great for ponds and small water shallow water. It can carry everything that you need to include your dog and a buddy. The one feature that I would like to see for it is a set of doors as seen on layout blinds. This would enable the hunter to hunt in the middle of the water and remain hidden, I have used this method several times with good success. I would also recommend putting some sort of tie down cleat every 18 inches so that the hunter can attach some sort of camoflage. Features What do you like or dislike about the features? The boat is great and well thought out, i have been standing and shooting while my dog was jumping in the water to retrieve my dogs. The gun rack is perfect to keep the gun out of the bottom of the boat when you are moving. The decoy slots are perfect for small water i just leave the decoys in them when i am transporting the boat in the truck. All I have to do is pull the boat out of the back of the truck and slide it into the water and off we go. Cost Do you think this item is a good value? Yes. Flyway Which flyway do you hunt in? Eastern Overall Please give your general opinion of this product. Generally this boat is slicker than snot. It takes very little water to float it, and that even holds true when loaded with gear, guns 2 hunters and a dog. I love the fact that it is a very stable platform, I have gotten in and out of it in 3-4 feet of water and the interior of the boat remained dry. I hunt a lot of beaver ponds, and I have had to cross dams sometimes I Have to pull it across and sometimes i can get a good run and just "jump" the dam. The front and rear storage is great, I have never had water build up in either one of them. If you hunt with a dog I strongly recommend the Ramp for the bow. It saves a lot of stress and strain on the pup and yourself.
