Boat has two removable doors held in with hitch pins. You would never know where the doors are unless I told you.

Thanks for the replies. For the prices of say duckwater and bankes this is a quality rig at a great price and serves the purpose it needs to

That's a sweet looking rig. Will the driver have any issues seeing over the bow with that blind on?

No issues while driving. I was in a fold out lawn chair while driving and it's fine. The one door is right next to the steering wheel also.

awesome build, finishing mine as well. How are you going to attach brush? or are you not? Not sure what the ducks mind up that way. Once again, Great Build!

No brush, but if I was going to do brush I would put bungee rope down the sides and slip the brush under that.
