New to the site as well as duck hunting. Looking to buy a havoc model 1656 with a surface drive motor on it to use in the upper mobile-tensaw delta for big and small game hunting and the lower delta for duck hunting. Anyone experienced with the mobile-tensaw delta? Ik the lower part of the delta can be pretty shallow in places along the causeway but know nothing about the upper delta, is it shallow in places, a lot of log jumping or flooded timber etc. Im pretty much trying to decide if a surface drive or outboard would suit me better for hunting the mobile-tensaw delta.

Thanks guys!

I've been told that a havoc hull doesn't handle logs/ stumps too well with the inverted ribs. May want to look into a true slick bottom hull for those conditions

I don't have a ton of experience but I did bring my outboard down to the delta several years ago. We went in the upper delta and I did not have any problem with my outboard. We went to the causeway and an outboard is useless. Too shallow for an outboard unless you get out and stay in the main channel. If you ever plan to go to the lower delta, don't go with an outboard.
