My sneakboat Blind build (up Dated)

Started with a Bankes Intruder Sneakboat. A 12 foot unsinkable duck boat.



I removed the Rails and covered the boat with Rope fencing.





I cut everything to fit. Melted the rope ends. Used a 3/8 inch rope border.





Then I put a Double layer of Max 4 camo net on.

Cut to fit.



I used Brown vinyl covered hog rings to attach the net. (First I used zip ties. After you cut the ends off. Them suckers

are like knive blades. Got rid of those.)



Next I built a Hood. I dont fool some bird because of the hood. But for me its worth it sit up and watch em work.





Then I made a Cockpit cover.

I attached the cover with 4 buckle snaps on each side.



Supported by 2 inch camo webbing



The cockpit cover unsnaps to take off. I just unsnap one side and rolled over to the other side when running the lake.



I added snap hooks so I could pull the skirt up when boating.

Added a few extras. Oarlocks.



Lowrance



Gunrack



Jerk string Handle. Inside the boat where nothing sees you move.




End I hook the Jerk string to. Outside the boat.

Lots of room to sit inside.






I have three colors of grass zip tied to snap hooks. Can cover the boat for any type of hunting conditions.



You cant have a Custom Duck boat without a Custom Trailer built for it.


Coming home from LineX








All Finished. Ready to hunt.

We have some safety rope fence like that here at work that I have been eyeballing.

Itall, you might look at grainger or a safety product supplier for it.

Memphis net and twine.

Very nice job sir, when cutting zip ties. Twist off with line mans pliers, cut off with flush cut pliers, or BIG nail clippers work good also for no sharp edges.

I'll keep your secret as well and nice job.

Post up some pics in various settings once you can get them.

Would be cool to see.

Well done and I hope you slay em....as if you won't without my well wishes.

Better get out in the garage and pluck than small stone out of the tire.

Nice looking blind.

nice job on the boat and trailer but I was disappointed to see the gas cans and other stuff setting on the floor in the corner.

You are way to organized for me. wow.

I wanted to face the bow. Could not get it to work out with the built in bench seat. I had no issues with shoot toward the motor last season.
