Brand New Duckie

Hey guys.I just picked up our new duckie. I am wondering, do most people put their names and phone numbers on their duckies in case they lose them? And what do you use, a sharpie? This is a dumb question but oh well. And does anybody have any specific duckie advice? It's a tandem Tomcat. Thanks** SYOTR

Are you serious man?!?!?!.......you're gonna write your name on your duckie.....that's cruelty to animals man.....not cool at all.....if you can't properly care for a duckie without losing it maybe you should reconsider owning one and give it to a farmer or something.

Every used boat i've ever purchased had a name and phone number. Call aire and see what they recommend for a marker

Yes

Yes, put your name and a phone number on your boat and yes, you can use a Sharpie. In fact, it seems that you are required to have this info on your boat on some rivers. Besidess, you never know when you're going to flip, watch it float away, and then just hope someone gives you a call.

I believe it's colorado law to have your name, address and number on your boat. I'd ask Grif if I were you.

What would you ask him? If he has any extra turkey legs?

Write your name on everything. Write it with Sharpie. Write it with a paint marker. Write it again when it rubs off and fades in a few months. Wrap identifying colored tape around the d-rings and on the paddle shaft.

A few years ago, on a day float with about 25 people, I loaded a bunch of similar duckies into the back of my truck and we shuttled everyone back upriver. After dropping everyone off with their gear, I headed home with one duckie. In the morning, my neighbor came over to get her boat she had left in the back of my truck. Mine was still sitting on the boat ramp the following morning. Brand new paddle too! Yeah Glenwood!

The indelible marker may have been the only thing that deterred a would-be thief.

I once heard someone say that the went to one of those dog tag kiosks and made tags for their boat with all of their info on it Ė Seems like a pretty good option of you donít want to write on your rubber.

Too easy to remove. Make a stencil if you want neat.
