So now that the season is peaking its head right around the corner i figure its time to get a blind for the boat. its a 18' alaskan with a side console, hunted my old boat with a beavertail blind and liked it just didnt like losing the room due to the cross members, not against it but more looking at hard sided blinds DIY. I have a question for those with hard sided blinds... we hunt a lot of tidal water here in maine a lot of it we can't wade where we set decoys, how do you accommodate decoy retrieval? I was thinking of making it out of EMT and attaching either aluminum or plastic for the sides. other blind i was looking at was the avery quick set but not sure it will work with the side console and controls. any ideas are always welcome and i will try and get some pics added. Thanks.
