I have a home made blind based on the scissor action of pop ups blinds. It follows the contour of my semi-V boat. I have in the front 2 flaps that open up and a flap in back where I sit and then the cockpit hole. It is covered with desert camo netting which I sprayed more golden color to match the cattails that I hunt. I can wrap up the netting with small stretchees, so it is compact when it is down for picking up, or setting uout decoys or going down the road. Being it is down inside my boat-it also does not act like a sail either when motoring or putting out or picking up decoys. It works for me.
But it was real headache to make it work just right--like 2 days of time in measuring, cutting, welding the alum sq tubing, etc.. Then I had to paint it yet. Word from the wise-use a tinted alum/galv metal primer first and then top coat it with reg camo paint. Otherwise the paint will chip off way too easily. All said and done--it cost as much as a the bought ones-about $650 when I was done-so do not be thinking you will be saving anyd $. And Alum prices are much higher now too.
But it it is customized for my personal needs.
I think every type of blind hwas pros and cons-the trick is finding the most pros to your situation.
