Added the foot pedal today. I also installed two portholes so the dogs can peak out. Some more pics.

Last three...
Port side you can see the two portholes fore and aft. Missing is the beavertail dog ladder ( it was frozen to the deck and the outboard cover) and the outboard cover i made from two burlap bags sewn together. The jute ghillie strings were frozen, so it looks like a bad hair day, but really looks good. Time for a spray bottle of salt water...

Starboard (the fixed side) is not totally "ghillied out" yet. I still need a cover for the trolling motor.

I found one safety issue on out test trip. My dog, Mace, likes to look right through the scissor framework that drops down....that could hurt. I'm thinking of some kind of netting.

Hey Brad, how do you keep all of your grass etc from blowing off when trailering to the water? I'm in the process of building a frame for my 15' john boat and not quite sure what to do about covering it. Thanks.
When I'm towing my boat down the highway everything is rolled up.  The grass/foilage isn't really affected.  Here is my boat with the blind in the down position. I tuck everything inside the backing material and tie it up with small lengths of cord so it wont be torn apart by the wind.

Just did mine today got a free 10 ft and it was in rough shape.  Still need to build something to hold up camo on the sides.  All I had to do was paint the whole thing

I have a question(actually a debate with father in law) for all the boat owners with blinds on them, and specifically use the sheets of blind grass. Do you leave it on there all season, or do you take it off after each hunt(obviously after it dries) And the 2nd part to the question, do you wrap it up with anything while driving?

Anyone have any experience blinding up an windshield boat?
I got two foot itis this year and sold the open 16' Willie predator and got an 18'Jetcraft Yukon......
It fishes just as well as the smaller boat but has more room and seats but want to use it for Duckin too.

I just put three layers of primer on my aluminum boat, do I have to wait for the primer to completely dry before putting on my base layer?

Absolutely yes.  Let the primer dry for at least 24 hours.

Been planning on doing this during the summer, but of course I scramble to build it the day before I go out.  With that said, I was pretty excited how it turned out!  I had birds flying in without a clue that I was there.  It was a pretty simple project.  It was built on my 12 foot jon boat.  I built a 10 foot scissor frame and mounted it to the boat.  Then, I zip tied Tanglefree Knotted Blind Grass Sheets to it.  It traveled well folded down going 70 mph.  I still have to do a little tweaking, but I'm happy with it.  I'm going to drill a few more holes in the scissor frame so I can adjust the height and I'll make a designated spot for my dog to go in and out.  Fun project!

Our fence line home away from home. We used 2x3 non climb fencing and wove grass from the surrounding area through it.

My boat keeps me warm and dry most of the time.
1 Set out,
2 Ready to travel
3 Inside with my abused CBR during a slow time.  The floor mats are from Costco,  No slip, keep feet from fryin in summer fishing, Get dirty ya pull'em out, hit'em with the hose, let'em dry reinstall.  Heavy enough they don't fly out go'in down the river.

Just now saw these pics. Dog in front of the heater all wrapped up. Looks good ol timer.

Made a simple blind out of an old Bimini boat cover frame for our job boat. It can fold down for transfer as well. Once the seasons closer I'll put on some grass and camo.

Great idea Youngfowler! I'm building a frame out of conduit this summer. I'll post some pics when it's finished.

I put camo duct tape on the frame to get rid of the shine of the metal and I also put on some camo netting.
