Help the brother out.
I have a Lund Alaskan with a "permanent blind". It's 1" round metal stock. The vertical pieces are in stake pockets which are attached to the boat. Horizontal pieces connect each of the verticle ones, so after evrything is together, it's a solid frame above the boat. I then u-clamped 1/4 plywood (24' wide)to the side and then painted everything. It's very sturdy and has lasted two season on the ocean so far, although I will repaint paint for this coming season.
Good luck, congrats on the boat
