I have the 21' venture by duck water and absolutely LOVE it.  Talk about sturdy.  I would definately reccommend these boats.  If anyone is looking at buying a Duckwater and wants to take a test run in one let me know and I would be happy to take you out for a run.

I hate to tell you this but it's posted above in the very beginning ;), but here it is again.
http://www.duckwaterboats.com/

These boats were built to hunt on the Great Lakes, so they are built like tanks. I wanted the 17 footer but it was too much money for me. Maybe some day I can get one but for now the Lowe Roughneck will have to do. Read about these boats on their web site any you'll see that quality comes before quantity. BTW, the next boat on my list as being a good waterfowler would be the Bankes Boats out of Canada.

Yah thanks scott :chuckle: . i found it after reading the whole post again. Those are bad a$$ boats. I think i want the Bomer 19' boat or the Apache. Way nice i give two thumbs up. little out of my league but maybe someday......

Still would like to know what fishing in these is like. With other people that is. Could you guide fishing in this very well? and what is the average cruising speed and top speed with the recommended motor?

I do fish for sturgeon out of it a lot and it is wonderful due to being able to walk all the way around the boat there is nothing to get your line tangled in.  I run it up the snohomish system and stilly system quite a bit and it is great.  It handles rough water like a gem but would not suggest anything over 4ft wind waves... i tried 4+ with addicted and you can ask him... its wet.  however there was not once i was worried.  the boat will handle it the question is whether you can handle it.  it was 30 degrees and snowing that day to top it off.  the top speed of mine 21 almost 22 ft with a 140 suzuki is about 55-60 i usually cruise at about 35 give or take.  With a full boat of 6 people I go about 50 top cruise about 30.  If anyone wants a run in it after duck season let me know I would definately take people out that are seriously interested in getting a duckwater.
