Hey BL,

I have plans for a duck boat called the "Hybrid". There is two files, each about 2 MB. email me at c-box at comcast d0t net and I will send to you. They are really cool, I have not tried it yet, but it could be done in a weekend once you have the material. Material Cost is about $200 or so, mainly due to resin quality, etc. but using plywood and some 1x mainly.

These are 8 foot boats that easily fit in pickup and can almost stack. Would be good small water boats. I plan to make one and bring to NoDak and leave there, for times when we might hit slightly deeper water on our friends farm lands.

edit - actually do a search on "hybrid duck boat plans" and you will see the "main site" with the name in the url. These are free plans, and free site, so not advertising it. Just a duck hunter sharing his plans with others. Some good pics of the various builds people have done.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
