there are sites for 'scissor' duck blinds or something like that. they walk you through all the details. you'll have to assembly and install a store bought one anyways, so may as well assembly and install one meant exactly for your boat.

question guys,  It looks like most people prefer the jon style boat does this have to do the fact that it is more stable than a v bottom or that it can go shallower than the v bottom or that it has a lower profile?  I ask because I am planning on picking one up and would like it to double as a fishing boat for the boys until they get big enough to do the kayak thing with me.  thoughts?

thanks
carl

you could always weld some peices of pipe to a few big clamps for a good starter that wouldnt put a hole in your boat.

Drill baby Drill! Not willing to drill a hole in your boat must be a sickness.    :chuckle:  My buddy won't even mount rod holders in his boat.  :bash: 

Figure out your mounting system, use all stainless hardware, maching screws or bolts, washers, plus Stainless nylocs, then use a dremel, hacksaw or angle grinder to trim off all the excess hardware lenght, lightly sand, then shoot with primer then paint. End product looks nice, no snags, no rust.

Yes,all of those things. But also consider the freeboard and the type of water you'll be in. it's hard to find a one-size-fits-all solution for boats.

Place a few removable feet on the boat for an aluminum framed blind.  I am looking to make something new for my Sea Ark.

Well just got done putting the finishing touches on my little layout will be ready for early goose and the season.  Will hide easily and be comfortable to layout in.   :IBCOOL:

I just picked up the Quickset.  Are any of you guys using the wind or rain blocker? I am considering getting one or both. Any input would be apreciated.

I have the wind blocker, but if it gets windy your boat is like a sail.  I have a hard time keeping the curtains down unless I clamp them down.
