If you haven't already, let us have a look at your boat so far- camo paint job, blind set up, etc. Did you make your own stencils for the paint job?

We mostly wanted it to look like it was an island, thus the reason we just painted it a sandy-type color. Then I spray painted a little bit of black on it to break it up a TAD.

What do you think about the paint job? Is there anything you guys would change or add to it? Let me know because it wouldn't take that long to fix.

Thanks for the links to your pictures. Great to see the before, during, and after shots. You guys did a fantastic job on the paint and blind construction. I am sure that the next picture taken of the two of you next to the boat you will be holding up limits of mallards. Have fun out there in the new rig and be safe. By the way, don't forget to put in the drain plug!

At least 25% of the time I forget to put the plug in the boat. That is but one reason I run a 2000 GPH bilge pump! By the way, I can tell you from experience that it really stinks having to put your hand / arm in the water to insert a drain plug when the air temps are in the teens and water temps in the 30s. :help:
