New Rig
Now that the season us upon us here in NJ and the Tuckerton show is over I figured I would share a few pictures of my dad's new rig.

He wanted to have a two man boat built that could handle bigger water crossings but still have the ability to hide well as we are puddle duck hunters.

He settled on having Dave Clark build him one of his Estuary II hulls (a Carl Adams sneakbox design) with a cockpit enlarged for extra room. We based the cockpit dimensions off my high box and melded the flapper board and front dodger designs off the high box and a southbay boat. Ultimately we ended up with a 13ft garvey/sneakbox design rated for a 25hp outboard and two people. He will be running a F25 yamaha on it.

Dave included his traditional dodger design for full canvas, but the boat will predominantly used for side shooting without the canvas. Dave also designed a cockpit cover as well as a rear flapper board that can either be used with the full length cockpit, or used to enclose part of the cockpit while hunting solo.

Looking forward to seeing how it performs this season. I'm not getting rid of my high box any time soon, but this will be a nice alternative to hunt with my dad at times.

The 13 Garvey looks great. I like it with the flapper board on and grassed up.
Great rig for sure! Is the Garvey a planing hull?
Good luck this season!

Very very nice. If that's not the perfect duckboat it sure comes close. Another vote for Dave builds a great boat super talented. Enjoy and be safe. Jim B1

Good morning, Craig~


Gorgeous rig all around! Nice combination of the sit-up blind with a garvey hull - the latter hard to beat in my opinion when shoal draft is important.


All the best,

Yes it gets up and goes with the 25 on the back. My dad is really pleased with the performance. I believe the original estuary II hulls were set up to run 15hp but Dave had them re-certified for up to 25.
