My boat blind pictures
Here are some pictures of one side of my homemade boat blind. Wings cupped and feet down I hope that this helps you out on what you want to do.
One of the pictures is blurry but in it you ccan see the little elastic loops that are sewn onto the fabric that hold the raffia bundles. There are some extra loops that are between the raffia loops lower down the blind that i stuff with native vegetabletations when i get to my spot.
The frame is just 3/4 EMT and some bimini fittings that I picked up at bass pro. All said and done I might have 275 dollars in the whole thing. The bulk of the cost was the camo cordura fabric that I purchased from www.snydercreek.com. Check out the formal fabrics while you are there.
Hope this helps out some folks.

Do you have anything down the center or is it just open in the top?It's not so much if you win or lose - it's how you shoot the flaming arrow while riding a camel.

I don't want to look like a big pile of grass then. The brown in the fabric looks close enough like the rocks and mud on the shoreline that I can get by with just using one or two pieces of driftwood at each end of the boat.
Here are some more pictures. You can see that the fabric is attached to the frame by using long parrallel strips of the velcro to make a "sleeve" to go over the tubing.
As for the dog. He is always right at my side. He didn't understand why I wanted him to sit in front of the boat. He also may have been mad that I was fussing with the boat but not going hunting or fishing.

The boat has been great! Only thing I wish is that it was bigger. The first couple times trying to get it on the trailer with the stick steering took some time but I am an ace at it now. By far the best money I have ever spent.
