Boat blind, ive heard good things about using metal conduit not so good things about PVC. Just kinda wanting some more opinions. Any pictures of structural builds would be great too.

Mine is a replica of an avery quik set or whatever they are called. One of my buddies took all the measurements then went to home depot and built it himself.

BOAT BLIND

Postby DUCKANDBUCKAHOLIC » Mon Aug 08, 2005 12:30 pm

I TOOK FOUR 2 FOOT LONG STEEL SQUARE TUBE AND PUT THEM DOWN AT THE FOUR CORNERS OF MY JOHN BOAT WITH A 2X1 FOOT AND A-HALF PIECE OF WOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TWO ON EACH SIDE. ATTACHING THEM AT ABOUT 2 1/2 INCHES FROM THE TOP OF THE RAILING WITH A BOLT THIS ALLOWS THEM TO FOLD DOWN FLAT. THEN I TOOK A 8 FOOT CARBON ROD (THE TYPE THAT HOLDS UP TAKE DOWN GOLF NETS) AND FOLDED IT FROM WOOD PIECE TO WOOD PEICE AND THAT WAS MY TOP. I STRUNG CAMO FROM STEEL TUBE TO STEEL TUBE TAKEING IT AROUND THE BOW AND STERN. THEN ON THE BACK SIDE I ATTACHED A STRAND OF CAMO FROM THE BACK STEEL TUBES CASTING IT OVER THE CARBON ROD CONNECTING IT AT THE FRONT STEEL TUBES.
UNDERNEITH THE CAMO I HAVE GREEN TARPS I PAINTED THE INSIDE ONE SO THE GREEN WOULDNT STICK OUT FROM THE CAMO PATTERN. BUT BLACK COULD BE USED TO. (THE TARPS ARE TO STOP RAIN AND WIND IT GETS REALLY WINDY ON OKLAHOMA LAKES SOMETIMES AND THE BEST TIME TO HUNT DUCKS IS IN THE RAIN.)
AND IT ALL FOLDS FLAT SO IT WONT BLOW OFF WHEN YOUR GOING DOWN THE HIGHWAY. :yes: :mrgreen:
WHATEVER YOUR HANDS FIND TO DO, DO IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT.

Hey DUCKANDBUCK, you got any pictures of that setup. It sounds good, but I'm having a hard time picturing it in my head. I'm also trying to rig a boat blind up.
