He modified it to not have the motor well as he was a previous owner at one point in it's history. I've had a few over the years, but my absolute favorite way to hunt 'em is up close and personal, in a layout style ghillie boat that disappears into the background.

Once the base coat was dry I made a stencil out of thick, but flexible plastic and used tan and black camo paint to create the pattern. This was the motivation for the introduction of the Boston Whaler Dauntless hull, a more conventional V with shallow chine strakes, which sought to solve the ills of the reverse chine hulls while keeping the most important benefits.
