Marsh Rats are more of a swamp/ marsh boat being able to paddle. Some have used them as layout boats but I would not. As a matter of fact the majority of everything read or heard about that brand has been bad and would not trust my life with them. I have owned MoMarsh boats and found them to be stable as hell and disappear in cover or open areas with raffia grass and burlap (look like a beaver hut). Another great choice is Aqua Pod I believe there based in N.W. Oregon or Washington. A Carltson (sp?) pintail is a very nice boat to. All of these are easy to paddle and hide well. Momarsh and aqua pod both have factory made doors available that function like a layout blind to hide ya. A true layout boat will not paddle but is a option if you run it out of a big jon boat transport to your hunt area. Then just slip a camo cover over it with straps for Raffia grass and burlap.
