    it all depends on how you hide them. if you mount the duck on the water and their is noway to see the feet it could both help or hurt you depending on the mount. if the feet are done right and are visable then this could help your score in that way. some judges my think that your hiding somethink and cause them to look even harder to find what you are trying to hide and then find more things wrong . i hope this makes sence. if you do one swimming ,do it with a 360 degree look to it so you can see everything.

    i would inject and paint them so they are done. one thing i learned this year at our show is that " well thats good enough" want get you far in compitition . if you know its wrong then fix it. good luck with it
