GO-DEVIL® hunting boats are designed and built with the duck hunter in mind. Key features make this boat perfect for all shallow water environments. It includes an aluminum floor installed with nonskid surface, a slick bottom with no keels to hang up on obstructions, round chines to roll off stumps, logs and ditch banks, and a double angled transom for pushing backward in mud and stumps. These boats will not slide in turns like conventional square chine flat bottom Jon boats. A handle bar to hold on to while navigating through rough terrain as well as Perko® running lights are standard on all models. All of our hunting boats have flotation in the bow and side panels that meet Coast Guard standards. High Transom models are available ($100)
Duck Hunting Boats were designed to mimic an alligator's bottom side - slick with no corners! These boats outperform all other boats when used in timber laden swamps or narrow ditch environments. The nature of the slick bottom and rounded chines allow the boat to roll off of obstructions or banks. Some wonder if the rounded hull design causes the duck hunting boats to slide in fast turns. Actually, the opposite occurs. The rounded chines allow the boat to grip and bank during fast manuevers. The Duck Hunting Boats tracks better at "high speeds" compared to the Surface Drive Boats. The duck hunting boats are equipped with longitudinal ribs that provide superior stiffness over obstructions. There are no rivets or vee crimps on the bottom of the hul to bust or hang up. The layout of the duck hunting boats provide maximum storage capacity for dogs, decoys, and all of your hunting equipment.
