Floating Blind Questions

Postby jbjb5273 » Thu Jul 25, 2013 12:24 am

So I'm building my first floating blind. It's 8 by 16 with 12, 55 gallon plastic barrels that I've sealed under it. I have 16 foot metal poles that will be staked into the mud and they will be connected to the blind with female metal pipe holders bolted to the blind. This will provide more stability and allow the blind to move up and down, according to water levels. The questions I have are pretty basic. Is 12 barrels enough? Is 8 feet to narrow? Do the barrels need wired in, under the blind or will they stay there? I'm using 2 by 6's for the floor joists and decking for the floor itself. How is this all sounding to you all? Any opinions or feedback would be great.
