20* deadrise, boat weighs in about 7000# loaded with fuel, gets about 2.3 MPG fishing ready, doing 3500 RPM, and 43 MPH. At WOT she'll hit 68, and still get 1.7 MPG.

We love her, she was delivered about 3 weeks ago, and haven't been able to get off of it yet.

Very Nice rig!!! I think I saw yall when yall were running her 3 weeks ago. I was just launching my boat with my son at the quintana, and there were about 4 guys in the boat,and they were going over the ipilot. Then we were fishing in the cove, and saw this blue streak running around in the bay. If this is the boat, it sure is fast.

Thought about starting a new thread, might as well keep contributing here....Post your duck boats too fellas!!

Made this one last fall, 12ft long 32" wide, floats in an inch of water empty and will pole through 3" loaded with dog, gun, blind bag and decoys. I need to lighten it up a bit but is doing good for now, I also slap a 2.5hp longtail on it.

1848 Southfork with a tunnel hull. Still working the bugs out. It "being an stock 2004 Merc 40" turns around 5000-5100 rpms and runs around the 28 mph mark. Still have some wiring to finalize I wanted to make sure everything was like I wanted it. I have LEDs installed on the inside to see inside the boat at night.

Weedeater, no plans just worked with plywood and a small portion of an old boat, I'd like to make a larger version one day.
Merc did you ever paint or seal your floor? If not you may want to, the chemicals in treated plywood will create tiny little pinholes in your boat over time. Just a useful fact for you aluminum boat guys.

Yea that's what I would shoot for. I've learned boat building is really for the joy of it, its a lot more sensible to spend a couple grand on a new hull for someone like me who likes to get the most out of free time. I think I may try to get an IPB 16" for my marsh rig next year. I need to add a rubrail and cut some bracing out from under the floor and re-glass it to lighten it up, but it works as is so I may never get around to that haha.

Stines sells "Duck skiff paint" by the gallon for around 20$ its what I used for my green base on that duck boat. It would work pretty good for your floor.

Its oil based so I'm not 100% sure, I used epoxy resin and no primer on top and it is holding up well except for some spots on the bottom where my bare wood bunks rubbed on the trailer. I think if you put it on bare plywood it would soak in pretty good and not be necessary. I'm not as educated with oil-based and latex paints as I am other paint systems. The person at the paint desk could tell you a very clear answer.
