Otter Stealth 2000 Blind Ideas??

Postby glen1978 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 3:13 pm

Hey guys bought a Otter Stealth 2000 off a fella other day and getting it ready to go. Looking for blind ideas for it. Will be two in the boat so layout setup is out. I had a scissor blind setup for my old 16' Express. I cut it down and stuck it on there and the concept is great just unsure of the coverage. As narrow as the 2000 is I can only get the sides to come up to about 3-4" below my shoulder with me sitting in the rear seat.....granted this will keep hands, legs, etc from being seen. If I set in the bottom its great! But not sure how long I can sit down there. If yall got any pics or ideas throw em my way. Thanks!

Are you wanting to build your own, or buy one?

They offer a flip over blind.

Not interested in paying that kinda money. Ive heard they were junk anyway. Ive got the frame work done for the scissor blind and the g/f is painting it today. Ive got some cordura and camo netting but the cordura was cut and sewn to fit my Express. I would have to get it recut and sewn.....running outa time. Might just use the camo netting and some natural foliage at said duck hunting spot.

I just wanted to see what you guys had done. I can imagine many folks putting a $650 dollar blind ona boat that was $900 new.

I have had a 1200 for several years. I just throw a ghylie net over every thing including the motor and drape it across my knees while sitting in the boat on a swivel seat. I wear camo and a brimed hat. It is a great shooting platform.

No worries. Do they have pictures of the frame that you can copy?

i have a 2000 and i bought 2-10'x30" grass mats and plan to secure them to an 18" wire mesh fabric (bent in a semi-L shape) then ziptie to sides of boat utilizing marine loops (footman's noose) so the grass leans inward and lays toward center of boat. also have a 4'x5' mat that i'll cut to size to cover rear storage and come up and over the rear seat that will be secured to the bungees. want to make it somewhat removable yet low enough as i use it as a layout boat. may even remove rear seat and put a cushion on there for duck season.

i'll try and post up pics after i get done with it (should be this week).

I also thought about removing rear seat and puttin a cushion on it to get me lower in the bout. Found anything that will work?

I use a Lucky Duck Gear Down Blind inside my Stealth 1200 cockpit. It has an adjustable angled back rest, padding and a throwover covering with sewn-in grass straps.
