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?
Is it waterfowl season yet..............

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.

This is the same method used in making the FYI Hybrid Duck boat, of which I have the plans for. I'm going to try and make it.
