    Duck boats

    I normally shoot over a lake on the coast. Had till recently been using a 8 foot alu tinnie - some wanker stole it.

    Im now looking for something to replace, even considering an inflatable, id prefer not to be arse raped in price but realise its an oportunity to maybe consider options.

    something light that could with a bit of energy be thrown on top of truck (inflatable in this respects would be great), im thinking it would still be ideal to have a rigid hull? or do i go back to what i know and find a 8footer and do up again??? was a little small at times with a shit load of decoys and another person but was really handy to pull up in behind the Mai Mai

    What are you guys using?

    outfit in dunners advertise inflatables on stealme at a good price or you could see if a engineering shop would fold up a alloy punt out of a couple sheets .just a flat bottom with a couple runners underneath and bend the front up and a couple cross seats to stiffen it up with poly under them for emergency flotation.that way you can get it built out of what thickness you want and sides as high as what you want.

    I went from tinnies to a Canadian canoe,surprising how much you can load them up,I usually have 40 decoys,shooting gear and a large gsp and paddle 750m from boat ramp to mai mai,way faster than my mate in his 10ft tinny.
