With my old and high-tech (replacement) knees, I need the full crate height - plus a cushion!


All the best,

If your looking for more comfortable seating and need to be at a respectable height to peer over grassing try the 3 legged fold up seats with back normally sold for deer pop up blinds. When folded take up hardly any space but are just a bit lower than standard chair height. Real comfy when you place a boat cushion on seat but that may get you higher than desired. I used one when hunting my old black jack with upright blind and it worked great. Use it now in jon boatblind for extra blind seat. Primous made the one I have.

Happy to report I finally began constructing the Steve-Sanford-Style situp blind similar (almost identical) to the one depicted in this thread. If Steve S reads this I'm hoping he can recall whether he put any type of horizontal piece at the bottom of the port and starboard luan sheets to provide rigidity. It's clear from the diagrams and photos that the top and sides of the luan have such structure.

Thanks for any input.

By the way, we also plan to take Steve S's suggestion of making the top flap shorter (just probably not as small as Steve suggested, but then who knows, if we get in to model it we may find the suggested length is right.

I did NOT put any stiffener along the bottom edge of the plywood sides. It is only needed along the top for the hinges.


Best of luck!
