Thanks for sharing that LDUBS, I worked around them everyday for 2 years serving on a sub tender (USS Simon Lake AS-33), and later as part of COMSUBRON 14. I never got a full tour, but was on the mess deck of two of them and got to look through a periscope. They are way more roomy inside than the ol...
I can use diaphragm calls, but my go to call for many years has been a Lynch World Champion box call. Sometime I use both in conjunction with each other, one advantage of the mouth call is restricted movement when they are close. I only wear woodlands camo for both turkey and archery hunting, no nee...

Great build! I'm not that talented to build one from scratch, but my first FL was a TC Hawken kit, turned out pretty nice and shot well.

I remember watching a fishing program years ago where they took a miniature plastic kitchen sink off of a plaque, ran a wire through it, and put a treble hook on, they managed to catch a good sized pike on "the kitchen sink". I think it was at Gods Lake in Manitoba, and possibly Gadabout Gaddis, but...

I did the same thing, I cut just a big enough access slot to be able to install aluminum angle underneath the bench seat, then made a plate to cover the hole, actually doesn't look bad if done right.
That hull would be excellent for duck hunting and fishing. If you want a project, and the majority of the hull is in good shape, and you have the skills to do some of the work, IMO it would be worth the effort. I would do just the basics first, fix the transom, fix the ribs and any other damage, and...

Interesting! Looks like those hybrids also catch fish.

Nice job, I caught a lot of fish out of a Mirrocraft like that and always considered it to be a good boat, never leaked a drop of water either.
Love that type of boat. Little different, but the LCM's that I ran were my absolute favorites, just something about them! I remember when I qualified on one, I had to position it between a fleet ballistic missile sub and the ship and was sure hoping I wouldn't hit the sub and damage it! :roll: #-o :...
