    <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">I think they are a great big water boat.However as tender,I am unsure.It would seem like a real bear to off-load a layout boat off a T.D.B. as well as dropping a hunter&nbsp;after setting it.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">Only having 10' of cockpit, where do you put the layout??Towing it works, but is not the greatest way to get around.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">My opinion is if you are going to tend a layout setup you want a more open boat than the T.D.B 17..</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px; __styleDocument: [object]">Rich</P>

    <P>Don't waste your time, there aren't any birds on the lake worth hunting. Get a canoe and hunt Killbuck. </P>

    <P>There is a 17 foot TDB for sale on E-bay right now for $9000(40HP Evinrude).&nbsp; Personally I like them but I would buy the 21' Seaclass for Erie Ocean.&nbsp; Save a little money and buy a&nbsp;similar quality boat but don't skimp on the motor.&nbsp; Buy a Honda 4-stroke.</P>

    <P>smartweed.....agreed<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;as for a tender i have to agree with lucky not sure you will top the alaskin. doubles as a killer fishing boat too! i have fished and hunted off of 3 of them so far. as for a tender the tiller kicks big time a$$. very versitile and easy to manuver through the spread. the consule is a nice rig though as well.</P>
