    We found the higher profile of a boat blind acted as a sail in high winds and was more trouble than it was worth. Now we just burlap the entire boat and sit on the floor. Something to consider

    Wow !!! Your boat looks great. What material did you use for the blind. And do you have more pics of your boat in different positions? Would love to do the same to my aluminum v shape. Thanks.

    many guys on the east coast put boards on there gunnels with holes drilled into them, then jam pines or cedars into the holes. They take this down/set up each time out. The brush sits in the boat when running/not hunting

    Not a scissor rig, I think Montauker was referring to this. The brush boards are mounted to the gunnels. Usually we are brushed up better than in the second pic, but it was late in the year....and cold....and guys were complaining that the cedars I cut were extra itchy...

    Never hunted out of one but from what I know about scissor rigs they have the boards down the gunnels for bushes as well as the boards that get kicked overboard and anchored.

    Mark you gotta learn to cut the non-itchy cedar bushes!
