Ottter Stealth Duck Boats

8 posts in this topic

Hi i just bought a stealth 1200 duck boat today and I was wondering if anyone on here could tell me some things about them since i have to wait till next year to use it.

1. Are you really able to stand up and shoot without wobbling like on the photos they have of them.(advertisments)

2. Does anyone out there have the oar lock kit you buy extra and how do you like it?

3. does anyone have a blind that they designed/built homemade to work with the boat. Im thinking about using 2-2x4's(one on each side) and c-clamps to make a very rock hard shooting platform like i do on my other boats.

Anyways guys it was great seeing the pics and hearing the stories of this years duck season I had a decent season myself but everything is locked up with ice so im done i think . anyways i got a goose field to hunt but dont have much gear(sold it). If anyone wants to hunt on the land (in the metro uncles land) all i ask is that i come. i was out there over the weekend and managed to get one and seen alot but nothing came in to my big 4 decoy spread. e-mail me if interested Breuer18061@yahoo.com

Yes. My friend has the 2000 and we used it this fall, it works great. Great for one or two person, works awesome for small bodies of water, moves around easier than a deep v or jon boat, gets you anywhere where bigger boats won't. I would consider buying one myself.

I would not stand up and shoot out of mine unless it is on fairly solid ground, especially with a dog. I made that mistake once and darn near went in the drink. Of course the dog took off at the shot, so that was the main problem.

I just put the oar kit on this fall and it is definitely WAY better than paddling!

I made a layout type blind for mine, but got some plans from a guy online for a scissor type blind for it, being my 10 year old daughter got the waterfowl bug this fall, so we'll be using the boat more as a 2 person.

We also used it with a paddle for jump shooting small streams this year and had a blast....literally!

I also have a motor mount for it and have a 2.3hp Johnson motor that I've used on it. It really flies, but I only open it up about half way.

I'll email you some of the blind pics if you want.

Yes please e-mail me the blind. I am interested in the scissor blind or one that could be put up vertical so a guy sould sit down and not lay. it would be nice if you could use fast grass and go all the way around the circle you stand in Anyways my e-mail is Breuer18061@yahoo.com thanks

The stupid things are really stable....and I have stood to shoot out of mine often...and have never been wet (yet). I am most comfortable sitting and shooting though. I usually make a blind out of teh available vegetation...cover me and the dog.

ps. I got 2 doz shells and a layout blind....pm me if you want to get out late season.

I have a Stealth 2000 and I beleive that it is way to unstable to stand up in and shoot out of! I used to have a fiberglass one that I had to stiop using because it just got to be too heavy for me to move around by myself. Maybe I was spoiled by that one but I had no issues shooting out of it. It also had poles that went through the hull when you got to where you were going for even more stablility. The other thing I dont like about the new one is that it's real tough to make it go straight when you are paddleing. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
