Ducks and Zodiacs
You are probably tired of hearing about plastic boats - -
one more question though before you cut me off....
If I try to hunt out of my Zodiac for ducks - well, what does freezing temperatures do to an inflatable rubber boat? I think that if it touched down to freezing it would be okay - but teens and zeros would make it snap crackle pop?
When do you put up your inflatable?
Was thinking about a duck cast and blast on Skilak or similiar in September/October.
It depends on which material is your boat made of? Hypalon or PVC?
AKR&K told me that it is Hypalon all the way around.
I assume that the rubber is better than the plastic for cold weather....
Yeah, Hypalon should do fine... PVC tends to crack in cold...

You went to Green in December - in a Zodiac? I think that either yours are bigger than mine - or they have been frozen off.....LOL.
