Only reason for hunting out of a boat is deep water, otherwise you are much better off hiding boat away from the x, and sitting in natural cover on a marsh stool. Even my layout boat (Momarsh) I rarely hunt out of it, I like hunting my layout boat because it is so easy to hide it.
This season though, with water flooded into the trees, it was easy to hide my gatortrax so did not hunt layout boat much. One hunt water was so deep were the ducks were landing (outside the buck brush), I had to hunt out my boat. I have a long one peice burlap with killerweed tied onto it, like the pic above. I use it to cover my motor when I hide it, it will cover about half the boat, I used that and pulled some natural cover over me, and laid in the boat, and just ran my boat on top and into buck brush to hide. Not with a lot of success I will add. Lol.
