very nice, I've been looking to make a boat blind too. Might have to steal a few of yalls design ideas. Looks like the ducks will never know what hit'em.

you better hope you dont get a windy day. you know the green pine is eventually going to die and turn brown right?. You should've made it so it's collapsible so you can see while driving.. other than that.. they'll never see you

belive it or not, you can actualy see right through it from the inside.Yes, i want the pine to turn brown, it will blend in better than the bright green i think.i wouldve like'd to make it collapsible, but that could get to complicated for me.Mabey next year ill look into that.

Is that PVC plastic or conduit?I heard the plastic breaks pretty easily.Once you get it all brushed up should be fine.I have been saying for 2 years I'm going to build a blind for my arsh boat, got all teh fast grass panels but don't like to hunt the marsh

yup, i was gonna use marsh grass but 1-its expensive, 2- brush piles are everywhere cattails arent.the boat just looks like a brush clump, and dosen't really need to blend in with other things.It can be right out in the open.

PVC will break. Especially when cold.
Assuming you are using SCH40, try some SCH80 if you can find it in 1" ID, its alot thicker :thumbsup:

Or use 3/4" conduit. It really isn't that expensive either.

When I built mine it was about 5.50 for ten feet.
