So from what I get out of this thread:
Build frame out of conduit.
Put 1000d cordura over it- securing with zip ties
Put poultry netting over that to tie grass too.
Order synthetic raffia in whatever colors I need.
What do you guys think this would cost me to build a blind from start to finish on a 16' boat?

Started building the frame for mine tonight. I am going to order the fabric tomorrow. Thinking I am going to go with the cordura. Just curious as to how heavy it is. Trying to keep it as light as possible..I only have 20 hp..

So I learned that the grass comes in 2 lbs Hanks - mix match whatever you want for the 25 lb min order. I told them 16 lbs of Edge, 10 Sand, 8 Natural, 6 Tan, 6 Olive Green, 6 Medium Brown, 6 Garden. That ought to get us started and let us see what colors we like best.
