Go to an Army surplus and buy a camo net. Then attach a little raffia grass and use some natural stuff wherever you are. A canoe can't be too difficult to hide.

A canoe is not the platform to put a blind on for stability reasons. Get some fast grass so you can cover it when you get to your spot.

buy a sheet of dow foam as thick as you can get it[glue up some layers to 6'' or 8''] cover it with surfboard type 2 part epoxy and ''glass'' for strength bolt the pontoons onto each side for stability without adding much weight ,then bore a 1 '' hole every couple feet for black plastic water pipe frame for netting ,again strong without a lot of weight. But shoot by the time you go through all that trouble you could get a little john boat finished. Just thinking about a canoe as a shooting platform.
