That's it? You gotta post some boat pics and tell us what you decided on.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

Thats a XXXX? tracker grizzly sportsman. Good choice! I've had a 1754sc with a 20hp merc for over a year and have no complaints with it. I use I quite a bit. Ive chipped some paint bumping docks and such my fault and expected, however im not sure how well the deck paint will hold over time. I plan to install hydroturf anyway. The deck get iced up and slick. I have a beavertail 1800 blind on it and its pretty awesome all grassed up.

Mostly saltwater. DE & MD.



The pods on the back are foam filled. They claim to help the boat float better in shallow water if you would be pulling it by hand.

I'm not sure yet. The lease that I am part of has several river / creek blinds that we will use the boat to access. I have thought about a boat blind for some divers in the Rehoboth Bay.



My son (14) and I are pretty new to waterfowling, so trying to learn the ropes this year.

Nice boat! Good luck with it.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
