    My duck boat

    I recently bought an old Mirrocraft 14ft boat I am planning to convert to duck boat
    I stripped it completely out, cleaned and washed throughfully:



    Bought a brand new trailer as the old one was all rusty and in terrible conditions, then painted boat in and out:



    And than the fun begun - camo painting!
    I made my own stencils from the shower curtains. First layer - black:



    Than brown, green and beige. Here is the look and the final touches:





    I camo the motor's cover too. It should be good enough for the time being, Next - I will need to install the blind, but most likely will do after the season is over.

    Beauty of a boat. Are you putting the thwarts/seats back in? My guess is that they are structural and are needed to keep the sides from folding in. Real nice to have that high transom.

    At the very least gussets to keep from twisting. Nice paint job.

    Not free hand, I made my stencils first. Different stencils for different colors.
