I am just about done with my 1st waterfowl/fishing rig. The only thing left is to build a blind on it. Below are the before, during & after pictures...

Looks great! Did you make your own stencils? How did you seal the rivet holes where you pulled the center bench out?

Thanks all.

Perci, I bought some cheap stencils. All holes were filled with closed end blind rivets with 3M 5200.

Nice work. Lot of man hours but I am sure you will enjoy hunting out of it for years to come! :clapping:

It looks better than most new boats right out of the store. Good job and enjoy her for many years. :thumbsup:
Cheers

Thanks all! It was a lot more man hours than I ever planned on putting into it :grin:

I have to start on the blind now... Not looking forward to that! Feel like its going to be frustrating.

No, the floor is all aluminum with Nautolex on it.
