    Well got back from my business trip and found i had gotten the wood to finish up this blind build. Here's what I've got done so far.

    I used 3/4 treated on the floor and boat hide sides. My little bro came thru on some bleacher material they were demoing.

    Now i just gotta get the ends done, the doors on, the dog ramps, get the blind rapped in tar paper and get the pontoons painted and she'll be ready for brush. Let me know what ya think so far. I think I'm gonna rename it "the Cabin" with all the nice wood work on the inside.:tu What do ya think I'm I spoiling these guys or what?

    I believe its for getting the boat underneath?

    By the way, I agree that wood and all the other work you have done looks top-notch!:tu

    as a built-in preventative of noxious gasses from both dog and man.

    What a rig!.....but how are you gonna get into that palace from the boat?
    Looks like there will barely be height enough to get the boat in.
    I think I'de name it "River Queen" as it sure is a Queen Mary! Great job!:tu

    Didn't give yourself much room to get in and out of blind. What are you going to do if you have to handle a dog to a bird. I just think you would have had a little more outside deck. Just my opinion, it does look really nice. :tu
