You lose 6" of floor space between the edge of Ext deck and center bench with the way the Hybrid is designed with a center bench and Ext deck. Tooo much. My clients' feet would be tangling with the decoys and can't have that. Would of had to go 18' and 18 ' boat will not git in garage. I can barely get my 17 in with a swing away tongue. Also, decided that a flat rake is really best where I run 90% of the time.

This layout works best when for me and clients. If I woulda got a Hybrid it would have been layed out the exact same way.

Yeah if I could change anything with the layout it would be nothing. Where can I get a longer throttle lever? That stock one is for the birds. If your hand is on the grip, you can only pull it with your pinky finger. To pull it with all fingers half your hand is off the grip. They need to change that.

That's great Homey, Once again we are running the exact same boat other than the interior box layout, glad to see you chose that rig again.
I have to say I am a little surprised with all the new stuff on the market with everyone running hundecks, catwalks, and hybrids hulls, thought you would be getting the next big thing. I do not think those things would work well with my application but seems like that's what a bunch of guys are going to, everyone always wants the next big thing.

What happened to the old school camo?

IF Guy removes the Team Quack from his boat you will both look exactly the same.

That's my complaint with the Gator-Tail as well.

The throttle takes some getting used to, thought about putting a BPS one on mine as well but do not think it would be more comfortable.
Just a little trick that may help, I know it has helped me but loosen the mount a little and twist the throttle down towards the bottom of the boat and it will be a lot more comfortable to drive, and use more than just a pinky, come on be a man. Wrap your hand around it and run full throttle.

How big is your garage?

Luckily I have a boat shed for mine (though I had to move a lot of stuff).

But may be moving and they don't seem to make garages very big anymore.

My boat was like that. I had an 18.5 boat with a breakaway tongue. There was a small closet (normal sized door) in the center of the back of the garage. The motor went in the closet. I nailed a 2x4 into the floor at the right distance and would back it up until the trailer wheels hit it. Right at 1/4 clearance on the garage door laugh Without that closet the boat would have had to go in on a diagonal.

I'm old skool..dont' want/need a huntdeck, stepdeck, quackdeck or whatever lol

I don't like catwalks on jon boats and I can't stand all the int multi-colored LED strip lights guys and doing now....You going hunting or to da club? I can understand the interior light need but it's getting silly these days.

as far as the camo paint, I saw a few info vids of Kent( G Trax) in his Old School camo rig on a river and it stuck out like a turd in a punchbowl. I really like the pattern but too yellow where I roam 95% of the time. So once again, go with what blends best.
