An outboard will work fine. I haven't built one, but have hunted out of one at a club here. Pretty much all they did was build a regular duck blind on the deck and bench setup for shooters. They had a decoy storage bin in a back corner along with mounted heaters that ran off of the large propane bottles. They rigged a Coleman stove up to run off of the bottle too. You'll probably have to figure everything out by trial and error. Nobody knows how you hunt or your preferences on some things other than yourself. I will definitely be interested in seeing some pictures because a pontoon blind will be my next project.
