New to the Fleet
We christened our new Bankes Revolution two man layout boat this past weekend on an action packed harlequin duck hunt. Repeat hunters Phil and Carolyn were game for the adventure, so in predawn light we set out in our tender fv Siwash towing this new duck boat through the openwater for several miles then inshore to a secluded cove and set a rig for the “blue ducks”. Our services have been employing single man layouts as an option for many successful seasons and now this two man boat allows even more options to make layout hunting a social/ group affair. The boat is a good hide, yet substantial with plenty of room for each hunter– including separate cockpits and gun rests, high sides, a sprayskirt and very towable hull. This Bankes Revolution is an impressive boat that was obviously well thought out prior to production. Our first hunt with Phil and Carolyn and the new layout was a great success and we plan to use the 2 man Bankes on more hunts as the season progresses. It’s likely going to perform great on scoter , ‘bills, oldsquaw, goldeneye and black brant hunts as well.
