My name is Steve Parsons and I'm 34 years of age, married with a 15 month old girl. I hunt the Tennessee River here in North Alabama with Lake Gunterville getting most of my attention during the months of November - January. In the off-season I build, design, modify, read, etc...anything related to duck hunting. My favorite styles of duck hunting are sculling and layout in open-water for divers - though a trip to the flooded timber in pursuit of greenheads and woodies runs a close second. Have helped to build a sneakbox type of boat last season out of a 14' ski boat that underwent "heavy" modifications/tuning and was equipped with a 15 Merc. Beings that this boat came from a marine junkyard and was given to us, it gave my partner and I much satisfaction to make something from nothing. Currently I am working on Devlin's Sculldugery II that should be completed sometime in October of 2000.
I am seriously considering compiling a historical account of "Sculling - The Lost Art" that will be supported by a web page that will have in-depth information on this fascinating style of hunting. The site will include sections like photos, current mfg.'s with specs. of each boat, forum, etc...
