Need a Layout Boat?
Picking the right style comes down to the environment you intend to hunt. A submerged-box layout has a low profile, which hides well and is suitable for calmer seas. Check out the Erie Layout Boat from Waterfowl-Works ($1,050; waterfowl-works.com). For rough waters, a pumpkinseed is a good choice, such as Bankes Boats' One-Man Layout ($1,695; bankesboats.com). It rides higher and offers a better view of low-flying birds in a chop.
