Just picked up a used 20' War Eagle and looking to have a blind built on it after duck season. Looking for aluminum construction. I live in south central Illinois, will travel for quality and price.

If you want a permanent blind check out phowler boat company, se-marine, and alumilite boat blinds. It will be expensive. I took these ideas, bought the material for the frame and took it over to a local welder. Saved me a lot of money and then I just put the aluminum skin on myself and painted it up. Took me all freaking summer here and their working on it but it saved me lots of dough and I added on all my little features. If I had the money , I would probably let someone else build it.

AAD boats in Bartonville can probably build you anything you need.

I would definitely be interested in building you one. I just finished up building one for my 18x60 war eagle. If you would like to bounce some ideas back and forth email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I second AAD. They are currently building me a boat, and they have been great through the whole process. They will customize it however you want it.
