16' starcraft blind build

Postby hillbilly.. » Fri Sep 06, 2013 12:04 pm

started to build my blind for my 16' starcraft

Image

Image

I put oar locks to hold the blind. since this boat does not have wide gunnels like most.

Image

well its a good thing emt con is cheap because this rookie sucks at bending it. that's only 3 of 4 sticks I screwd up.

still have to make other side and then wings for the front and then wings for the back to cover motor and then flaps for the top.

Dumb question probably... but how does it fold down for trailering and boating? Do you just pull it out of the oar locks and pile it on the floor? The finished product looks great!

Not at all, it looks perfect. It blends into the water better than having a hard line right above the water line.

The only thing I would change is to get some mud on the grass, or use some brown spray paint to break it up a little bit and give it the effect of having shadows on the sides.

I love the low transom cure someone built on that boat too.

maybe ill hit it with some darker brown. and I will be takin the live well out for hunting season because I don't have any foot room back there and the the oil tank and gas tank and battery are kind of coupble in the back and ill have to redo the floor with alum and redo all the wireing to make it less of a mess
