Joe,

The first "real" duck boat I gunned out of was my friend's HT 14. It was a neat boat, and, once we were ready to rig out, was very comfortable. I loved the interior shelving -- especially since slotted decoy bags slid underneath and out of the way. And, it grassed in beautifully.

It had some performance quirks -- slow to plane, porpoising, etc. I declined to purchase it when he put it up for sale.

There may have been design changes later in production. The original version had a narrow (though possibly wider?) transom similar to a TDB Classic. That contributed to the performance quirks.

Like Tom, I also own an Estuary 15' Garvey. A Garvey gives you more boat per foot.
