A layout boat is designed to hunt waterfowl from a comfortable, reclined position that is very difficult for ducks to detect. White oak runners, covered with aluminum, provide better tracking and protect the hull during launch and recovery. However, we soon realized that we needed even more neck support to more easily scan for ducks. If you do a good job of matching the vegetation, these boats prove deadly even on the wariest of ducks. My wife and I discovered that they make great fishing boats on the smaller lakes in our area.

The bunks mate with the runners on the boat, so only one strap is needed to hold the boat to the cart. I added a rope winch called the Sky Winch from Greenfield Products, some rollers, and bunk carpet to enable solo launch and recovery even on dry land.
I built the cart to align with the trailer height for an easy transfer between cart and trailer. By subscribing to the RSS feed you will be notified when new entries are posted on this blog.
Pan fried half the bass for one meal and baked the rest another night…tasty both ways.
In the next installment I’ll discuss building a boat cart and modifying my utility trailer for solo boat launch and recovery.


I tried it but soon realized that having the oar locks on the cockpit coming wasn't going to work.
Ken, I mostly used a push pole with my Karas, but also spent quite a bit of time using a kayak paddle in places where the water was too deep. It is very versatile!I built a hovercraft back in ‘88 and it weighed in at 880# with the two motors on it. I did kind of the same thing with skinning it with fiberglass and I used West System epoxy.
