    War eagle duck bill

    Thinking about having one added to my boat. Need yo know if anybody has one and if they like it or not. How good do the rainbow light shine when easing thru the timber.

    Dont have the war eagle duck bill but I had a local welder build me a "duck bill" on the front of my sea ark boat and I love it.

    I personally do not ahve a duck bill, but my buddy has a 1548wareagle with one and i hate it. Its hard to get it on and off the trailer. puts the trolling motor on there funny,a nd the lights are not real bright. I do like it for dragging the boats,a nd its nice to step on, it doesnt get icy so you wont bust your butt!

    I built one on the front of my square nose flat bottom to make it pointed for going thru timber and I still have the wide flat for stability to bowfish in the summer.

    Personally I would have someone build you one. Back when I had my War Eagle I tried for a whole summer to get one put on and after 3 months of trying a old man at war eagle told me to sell my boat and buy one with one on it. I gave up after that

    I run my boat turkey hunting, fishing, frogging (catching off of the front deck), deer hunting, squirrel hunting and duck hunting and I can't think of a single thing that wouldn't get in the way of. I've been running a boat in timber for about 25 years and never had a need for a brace I want my spot light to shine wherever I want it to and at the exact second that I want it to. I'm honestly surprised you guys find those things useful. Are you guys that are using these just running your boats for duck hunting?

    And you know that how? I promise you that's not even close to the case. I make some long runs, in some nasty stuff, but you're right. "I ain't going to the hard to get to spots"

    I got one added to my WE and I love it. I use mine to run lights threw timber so I can hold on instead of tryin to control tiller and run spit light. Might not be for everybody but I like it a lot n if I ever get another boat I'll put one on it to. My trailor ain't set up for a duck but and that's a hassle but it's fine. I jus don't pull my trailer as far into the water when I'm loading her up n it slide over the handle n roller jus fine. The extra handles up front are also nice to pull boat threw timber or even up the trailer.

    Listen guys I didnt have them put on my boat so that it would look cool or tuff or cause I need a brace. I honestly thought that they would be the best way to get a good handle on the front of my boat. Untill I had them put on I didnt really have a good hand hold spot on the front for pulling the boat around when wading and such. They do offer themselves as a good bumper though and do cut through brush pretty nice. My lights I have on the front are cheaper work lights and honestly only work about half the time. The spotlight is the go to for me.

    That's why I said I didn't necessarily see the point of them, because I didn't know. I wasn't trying to be a pr!ck.

    I have always found that pulling the boat with my 20' tie off rope was pretty convenient. I just grab it a couple feet from where it's tied off and give a wrap around my hand and go. It's always there so when I'm hunting by myself and have to pull up on the bank and step out to tie off it's there and there is nothing on the front to trip over. Just wondering if you guys that had them were using your boats exclusively for duck hunting or if you used them for multiple uses. As far as the spot light goes I spend so many hours running a motor frogging and trotlining that it just doesn't feel right to not have it in my hand where I can direct it where I want it. Going in and out to the bank like that it would not only get in the way of catching or running lines but it seems like the lights would get torn up pretty quickly.
