Default Tracker Panfish duck boat

Hey guys I just started getting into duck hunting this year mostly on the Ohio River. A friend of mine's father has a 16' pan fish that he is not able to use anymore because of medical reasons. It most likely has a rotten floor that will have to be replaced but it has a 2002 25hp mercury on it that will most likely run after a little work. Has anyone ever hunted out of these boats? It's a semi V bow with a flat bottom. How hard would it be to find a blind for a boat like this? Also does anyone know how heavy they are? We hunt really shallow water so we normally have to drag the boat into around 6'' of water on a good day.

I had a buddy that had a pro-team 175 which is a couple models bigger than the panfisher as it was a 17 footer. The tracker all-weld design is awsome and long lasting. As far as the floor boards, a few days over the summer will have that fixed, just make sure you use treated wood. As far as depth, my friends 175s depth finder stopped reading at .9 ft so given the fact that your tranceiver is about 3-6 inches below the water line I would say about a foor and a half deep. however, we have had it in water a bit over ankle deep and finally had to get ot and push it. Blinds for these boats are usually easy to find but can get a bit pricey. Cabelas has a few ranging from 250 w/o the cover material on up. I would get that then find some cheap military camo netting at the closest military salvage store.
