CAN YOU GET CLOSE IN A LITTLE LAYOUT BOAT LIKE THIS?
Well, yes you can. You are only inches out of the water, grass it with some local grass and you are one with your surroundings. You lay out in her keeping an eye out for those little soon to be morsels for the dinner plate. That is quite an advantage when the ducks are flying and wanting to land in your dekes.
Duck Hunting with a Duck Boat that is stable, light weight and least likely to be affected by wind is the way to go. The Duck Hunt Layout boat also has an extremely shallow draft encouraging a duck hunter to get deep in the skinny duck holding waters.
Stability is very important as you point and pull the trigger of your shotgun as less stabile layout boats can have the tendency of capsizing if shooting to the port or starboard sides of the sneak boat.
