    18ft crestliner (aluminum) with a 50 yamaha. I wish I had an 18ft privateer with a 115 on it.

    depends where and what you are going to hunt. i have hunted out of a 16ft jon with a 20 horse go devil in the shallows all over the bay and even the upper potomac. last year i bought a used bankes boat for sea ducks and i can tell you that thing is as close to unsinkable as a boat can get. if you hunt big water take a look at those but they are hard to find

    Arthur Armstrong Blackjack with a 25 merc.....to look at one of these you would not think it could take rough water, but it does and performs great.

    Like the looks of your blind Nemo. Does it fold down?

    Yes it folds down for trailering, works pretty good we push it up in the marsh (same grass we used for the blind) and it nearly disappears...

    My dad and I brush up his 21ft. carolina skiff. Goes in extremely shallow water but it you let the tide get out on you your waiting for it to come back!! Hunts 3 very comfortably. Could hunt 5 in my opinion.

    Carolina Skiff J-16. Good for the shallow water flats in the marsh around our blind within 1/2 mile of our house. Wouldn't use it in big water during the winter, but it is also good for light tackle fishing the flats.

    We use an 18ft G3 on the rivers around kent island and a 24 carolina skiff on the shallow marshes of worcester county.
