Cost: The price of aluminum keeps climbing, and I do not get the cost discounts that large boat companies receive. I will sell my boat at comparable pricing. The advantage of buying my boat is that you gain the side decks and cockpit at no additional charge. I will also discount the removable and adjustable aluminum Duck-Boat Blind, if you order both the boat and blind. You also will save on shipping if you pick it up. Currently I am not Coast Guard Approved, although I anticipate I will have jumped through all their hoops and trials prior to the 2008 duck season. I will not be producing any boats during the 2007 duck season. Later I will post photographs of the boat painted with a Duck Boat Blind.

Duck-Cart Blind

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Here is a versatile duck-cart blind that can be used to haul trash cans to the curb or all your gear down a gated road. It can be built to fit the hunter. This one is just big enough to fit myself and a 75-pound lab. It is designed for a maximum water depth of 18 inches. Note that the handles retract and slide into a larger diameter pipe. The front opening swings open. Grass mats drop right over pegged pipes. Use burlap for the side profile. This model is tight and light at 23" x 48". The cost of this model unpainted is $600. Ask me about a 2-man model where the hunter in the rear pushes the blind-cart like a grocery cart.
