Sneak boats are used for diver duck or ocean duck hunting. They are also used in marshes for goose hunting or puddle duck hunting. The primary purpose of a sneak boat is to get the hunter close to the waterfowl for a better shot.
Sneak boats are long and sleek to get through water quickly, with shallow drafts. They range from 10 feet to 21 feet on lakes and rivers. Sneak boats usually have a fall-away concealment that the hunter drops down to improve the range of wing shooting. They are quiet, have a low profile and are great for shallow water, according to Duck Hunt Nation.
