Seats in a duck boat

4 posts in this topic

I have a 14' Jon Boat that I use for duck hunting and fishing smaller lakes. I was tossing around the idea of putting seats in it. I think it would be more comfortable (especially fishing) but I am concerned with having the seats compromise some of the mobility for me and/or the dog in the boat.

Does anyone have and experience/opinions?

Use the clamp in swivels. That way you can put in and take out the seats as you need them or dont.

I have a canvas seat that's used for a canoe that might work out OK for you. It's just two pieces of canvas with a bit of padding and straps near the 'hinge' portion. When you sit down you anchor it and you can lean back pretty well. I'm not so sure it would be great of duck hunting since you're up and down a lot and also want to swivel. The problem with the clamp down ones is as soon as you lean back to far you're back on your arse and have a heck of a time getting up. If you go with those add a piece of rope under the seat to minimize your tipups.

On Saturday I just put a bucket down then a boat seat on top of that. That was pretty comfy and it wasnt permanant.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
