Boat Blind Attachment

Postby Anthosunie » Tue Oct 01, 2013 2:33 pm

Hi guys. I was wondering how do you attach your blinds to your boat? I'm trying to get some ideas on how I could attach my blind made of conduit to my boat without trying to put holes in my boat. Any pictures or ideas would be great. Thanks

C clamps and hose clamps

I bolted a c clamp to mine and use a little bit of foam tape.

That would get the job done for a fold up design, but if it's a hardside you'll definitely want something more permanent...especially if you hunt on bigger water.

I hope this makes sense. I have a conduit blind. It has a bottom frame that outlines the shape of the boat on the inside. The blind does not attach to anything. The folding arms are attached to this bottom frame with bolts and lock nuts for a hing point. The whole thing just sits in the boat and can be easily removed by two people by simply picking it up. i cost me some extra conduit, but I don't have any holes drilled in my boat.

This is what I followed to build my blind.

Look up at how the beavertail blinds attach, one center pole and then both end poles have three inch hooks/bars running 90 degrees from the that go over the outside of your boat and hook downwards around the gunnel, super fast and easy for removal

I use C-clamps. They work great. Maybe a drop of blue loctite on threads if you have to trailer for long distances. I've never had a problem personally, but I only have a 3mile trailer haul to the launch.
