Boat Blind Material?

Postby DuckAndDogBoy » Sat Jul 14, 2012 8:32 am

Hey guys. Time to replace the material on the folding top of the boat blind. What kind of material do you use?

Are you just making a cover or are you making some type of blind?

Please don't go to manga fabrics I had the guy there lie to me through his teeth. He has real low ratings on better business bureau. I had to tell him I called bbb to get money back. I ordered from a site I found on here can't remember name may search for it. Oh magna gave me a false ups number which I verified with ups that it was false.

You need to use a Paypal account and order online. I ended up with about 40 yards of 1000D for for $120 plus shipping in coyote brown which works fine under camo nets.

These are swatches. Mine was one large piece with one seam. It coverd two complete duck blinds with some leaft over. I had Avery style flip tops on each side with the rain tops style cover which took extra materiel.

Bump and buyer FYI. I ordered through Magna and my initial order was baited and switched. I purchased a roll of 35 yards that was in stock at the time of purchase and then later told only 45 yard rolls were. So, a he charged me the difference.

Well, over the weekend I went to go pick up my packages and there was another roll from Magna that was shipped to me. I never ordered it! Doing the right thing I called there this morning. What a jerk! He was a total prick. He tried to charge me for the roll and asking me to keep it. I don't need it! I tried to give him my info to send me a label to ship it back and he was more of a c*ck about it. Finally, we disconnected and nothing was settled except "send me your info," which I did via email. I'm sure I will see a charge for this BS.

Before anyone orders, beware of the trouble people are having. My initial purchase went smoothly, but never did I receive a tracking number and never verified the roll length. I requested for a tracking number and emails went unanswered along with telephone calls.

If you want a killer blind that actually draws ducks, try corn stalks. Yes, corn stalks-just hog ring yo some seine netting or other. By law you cannot have the ears of corn on them, but just attach artificial corn ears or paint some of the leaves bright yellow. Killer! Remember who told you this.................

Corn stalks dont work worth a crap if you are hunting in timber. Before you post in everyones thread, remember, yours is one, way, not the only way.

Check out any local fabric store with a large selection. In the NW we have joAnne fabric and they carry several colors of heavy duty cordura for $6-9 a yard.

Magna Fabrics. I really hate to refer you but can't beat prices. I got Tactical Khaki shipped for $3.40 a yard and it's 1000D. I checked last week and he had a few 20 yard rolls. I was forced to buy a 45 yard roll.
