The pictures from the outfitter look like the ones on the outer banks of NC...this is called a "curtain blind". The difference is a Sink Box is a floating box that hides the hunter below the surface of the water...a Curtain Blind is affixed to the bottom and therefore needs the panels (or curtains) around the perimeter to keep wave action from filling it back up. In actuality a curtain blind is just like a goose or duck pit in a rice field...just installed in the water with the top lip at or just below the mid-tide water level.

It uses about the same amount of wood as many coffin boxes with 12 to 20 hours of effort giving you a fiberglass & wood marsh boat. Costs $200 or less to build and glass.
You can get free plans on cheapsportsman.com or duckboats.net
