Normally, what would you use this boat for? It's so low in the water!

It definitely looks like a sculling boat, as said above, used for duck hunting to keep a low profile while slowly approaching "moored" ducks. Of course, the engine is not used for such stalks.

I guess you could shoot looter from it. Looks like a surface drive

That is a duck boat with a mud motor on it, definitely good for looter shooters.

We call it a "go-devil". It is for getting around in the swamps.
