I have an 18 ft custom built flat boat and I have NEVER had a problem hunting the same place as the people with the mud boats. I can stay on top and run through 6-8 inches of water and get almost anywhere I have ever wanted to hunt, weather it be hopedale, delacroix, or venice. It is also much quiter and scares up a small fraction of the ducks. Then in the summer I can also load up and go fish anything from trout to snapper. Yes, I do have to bring a pirouge along with me but omg how hard is a little paddling to get you all the way to the blind, plus I can hide a pirouge to the point where its almost invisible compared to a 15 ft boat with a boat blind. Then on top of that I can get everwhere twice as fast! Most ppl are just scared and freak when their motor buzzer goes off as if they just blew their motor up when in reality this happens way before your motor is hot enough to do damage. Just put back in neutral clean the intake off until you get water flow again, then the buzzer will go off in prob 30 sec then you can continue on your way. O and all of this for the same price.
