Grassed up and ready
I re-did my Duck Wrangler grass, it still needs a little more filling in especially the transom.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
First pick was two years ago compared to now in the second. Not quite apples to apples but I think should be an improvement!

Looks really good! How do you have your roof set on your boat . Does it move up and down when motoring ? As far as the camo ! I think you hit it right on the money. Looks great sitting in the bay with the back ground. Good job

Good morning, Bob~


Wonderful thatch job!


You might want to cover up that white spare wheel, though - IF you'll be rigging right in the parking lot.....


All the best,

The top is hinged at the back so it can flip over
Blind is made of heavy aluminum tubing covered with Cordura. It can break down and roll up along the sides for travel.

It is a 15 I saw one on the internet several years ago and knew I needed one but they all seemed to be on the east coast. Found one only 100 mi from me and jumped on it!
I love the open cockpit and storage shelves. Put a 40 Etech on it at the end of last season after I burned up my old Suzuki. I can?t wait to get it out this season.
Post up some pics of yours if you have a chance.

Wow that looks awesome!

How do you tow that boat? Do you put a cover on it? I'm asking because I have a min of 1 to 1.5 hr drive to hunt every weekend.

The blind will break down and roll, I have straps to keep it in place along the sides. I have had a couple of others question how it trailers as well.
I will get some pics of it stowed to show how that works.

As for adding coverage to the transom you could take a mesh decoy bag and cut it open for the coverage you need and then zip tie your camo to it. To keep it from blowing away in the wind, zip tie weights to the edges. Weights could be a rusty chain, garden hose filled with sand, decoy strap weights or whatever your creativity conjures up.

Boat looks great!
