Well weíre are going to be closing soon on another sixty acres at our cabin but this one has a 14 acre marsh on it for duck hunting so I want a boat to run around on it and a motor to be able to knock the weeds out of it for this year.

We are starting with a 14í Jon boat 6hp longtail and trailer

My cabin is three miles down the ranch road from this property and I want to be able to move the boat from my marsh to the pond.

So we built this boat for a couple reasons. The marsh has a big blind on one end in the middle and now way to really hunt the other end or sides. Plus with the last year it has not been taken care of and was over grown with tons of grass and weeds. There one only one open area with enough water where ducks would go. So we put the longtail on the boat to go out and cut up all the grass and weeds to open the water up. Dad spent all weekend down there driving around in the marsh and it looks great now. The creek that feeds it sure helped with current to push all the weeds out after he had them cut up.

Him and his buddy managed to get a few ducks too.
