well done! If you don't mind me asking, was the total cost on a job like that? I'd like to do it to my 16' Smoker Craft V someday...

a couple shots of one of my boats....it's a Chesapeake Sneak Boat....this past summer I added flip wings which worked out great .... Dogman took these shots at a Nov cookout a bunch of us had on GreatBay in NH.

That is some great looking cover on that boat. I bet you can make that thing disappear good. :thumbsup:
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

thanks Ga.....I wanted full coverage, especially from above, so I bought a section of Hog Panel....cut it to length and width....attached via 2 screw eyes along each side deck......the front flip boards will not infringe on the wings but more than cover the gap from sight and add to spray deflection for the passenger or gear....I lay in the boat resting my head on the motor using a hinged backboard....and I really am 'invisible' .....and with the low profile it is easy to disappear in thin cover....sometimes I even mount a sleeper and a fullbody on the bow.....I also tried the fast-grass for the first time and am VERY satisfied with the durability....no more cutting salthay and doing weekly touchups

It is homemade. The frame is 1" alum square welded, skinned in aluminum, then insulated. I have never taken any pics of the interior, it is a continued work in progress... I have made a bench that runs the high side of the boat for seating...it runs the length of the boat. The boat is all open down the middle, along the lowside I should have another bench made this year that will hold the stove, coffee cups, shells, and other misc stuff...

The front area that extends out on the boat is used for storage. The blind has been brushed up alot with tumble weed since the pic that I posted. Also the blind can be removed for fishing season by removing 8 bolts that connect it to the toprail. 2 guys are sufficient to remove it.

I think that is one of the nicest rig I have seen. That boat looks tough and I know that motor is bad to the bone. I like that boat man. Slick duck getter you got there. I bet fishing ain't bad in that rig either. If you get down to tennessee come on and hunt with us anytime. Did i say i like that boat.....
