Where did you get all the materials for the boat blind? I like the design a lot just wondering if you had more pictures to help get a better understanding.

Boat looks great, wish I had one like it. Your GSP's are awesome. If I ever get a pup for waterfowling it will be the GSP.
Waterfowling is truly an addiction.

everything worked out great. thumbs up to the 'timber brown' avery grass mats. much better color than the original. the axle on the trailer snapped on the way to the boat ramp in -4* weather... sparks and all. it has since been replaced with a new trailer. parts for the old one were just as much as a new trailer.

WVClays, if you ever want info on one, PM me. my black dog is actually siring a litter this spring.
