Hey! I just went to the survey about the primary use of your whaler. Where's the choice for Duck Hunting???
I originally bought my 1969 13' (a real beater) for duck hunting. It's a heck of a platform for a duck blind and it's reputation for saftey gives peace of mind when out on icy/rough water.
I'd like to hear from others who hunt from their whalers...perhaps exchange blind-building ideas.

I was thinking of purchasing a 13 footer for the very same reason. I hunt the Great South Bay off of Long Island and would love to see your rig if you have any pics!

My father and I used his Montauk for hunting those damn things this year. It handled about 30 magnum herters and 2 of us and all of our guns and other gear just fine.

There is no catch and release in duck hunting...

Duck rig is disassembled for the year. I'll post some pics in the fall.
It's essentially a 3' high bow of galvanized EMT conduit mounted to the gunwales with cheap bimini hinges in the front and two pcs of three foot galv "black pipe" mounted (vertical)two feet apart on a 2x8 across the rear.
The camo is Cerex die-cut sheet sewn to bungee which is tied to the front bow and stretched to the uprights in the rear to form the "top rails" of the blind. There's a green canvas skirt which hangs down to hide the white sides of the hull (sewn as a backing to the Cerex) Ain't pretty but it collapses and folds into a small stuffscak so it travels well on a trailer.

Now that is cool! I don't know about for this fall, but I'd sure like to do this myself in the next year!!
