    Stencils:
    1)Styx shadowgrass
    2)Letters and #s from generic stencil kit at meijer


    Paint:
    1)Base- Parker "dead grass"
    2)Stencil grass- Hunters specialty "marsh grass"
    3) MC # - Rustoleum camo green can

    Note did not stencil seats since they have camo cushions that snap on. Also did not stencil floor as it usually has a decoy bag or two laying on it.

    A 4HP outboard. That's what we've been using on our other canoe while duck hunting.

    Looking good nice work! I spy runners on the bottom, you going to mount a winch on the front?

    haha. I would like to but really I dont need it. The canoe is light enough for the two of us to pull it over without the winch. We've been doing it ourselves for years without a winch. Butch tried to talk us into one though haha.
