Rusty, That looks to be one of my early Duck Hunter 15. What year is it? You did a nice job on the camo paint job.

Tom you are correct..of course you should know...I bought it new so i'm thinking 2003-04,Tom it's been a great boat..we've had alot of fun on it...the trailer is new and you can see ,i added straps for the blinds on the sides....I think we've talked before on some ideas,i had a few years back..about a molded battery tray and some other things, How you doing Tom?

Rusty, Did you have one of the sea lion trailers. If you did I can see why you have a new trailer. We had a lot of trouble with them. Fortunately I changed to Yacht Club trailers some years back. A vastly better trailer.

Tom no it was'nt a sealion...i forget what trailer it was...i just wanted something better on long hauls...and this trailer drafts great on longer hauls and is just plain smooth...Tom what do you think about the straps on the sides for the blinds and the fuel line setup in the last picture...my brain is always processing ideas...

I was talking to Rich and he said he put those straps on some of the blinds. Obviously not yours but they are nice if you want to roll the blind down while moving or traveling. I know Rich runs the boat with the blind up and stores it in the boat while on the road with the cockpit cover on. I take it the fuel line retracts when not in use. I like the Idea. Again you did a great job on the boat. Good to hear your enjoying the boat.

Rusty. with the cost of a modern outboard, it really takes a lot of fortitude to camo up your motor. I have two mercurys that I just cant seem to get up the courage to camo paint. I just keep draping a camo cover over them. My Honda mud motor was another story, it was bright red and stuck out like a sore thumb, Puff canned it the first week I owned it! Rich

I just painted one of my newest motors last year and my brother was yelling at me that I was crazy for doing it. It's just the first brush stroke thats painfull. Then once you start getting into it it starts to be fun again. By the time your half way done your looking for more paint and other things to do to it.

the ducks aren't going to think very much of it,
because they will be dead in the spread.
