    Ya here are a few pics, life has got in the way lately so im just now starting the blind build. I went all out on my trailer. Adding carpeted custom side steps, LEDs throughout, all new hardware, and new wheel hubs, boat buckles. I wanted a trailer i wouldnt have to worry about for longer trips so i converted a larger trailer for a jon boat. 14" wheels and way overkill for a jon boat.

    Aluminum arrived a couple days ago to start this next project out. Bench will come first then the blind. The cushion shown above will also be the same across the top and back side of the alum bench.

    It doesn't even look like the same boat anymore , the hydroturf came out real good! I'm excited to see the finished product with the blind on.

    yeah it took me forever to add those custom hatches. Carving out the flotation foam was a major PITA. It has plenty of storage now. I was little disappointed though that the front hatch wasnt deep enough for the batteries. Hence the additional battery box i added. Was def not in the plan at the beginning. Now it will double as a bench and battery box. I plan to house the cutoff switch in there as well, with my main panel/ fuse panel and on board charger in the rear hatch. Ill add locations on the blind frame for graphite spud poles. I plan to modify the front frame of the blind for a different decoy storage now as well after seeing a couple of ideas on here. Blind will be fully sheeted in painted roof trim after the frame is complete. Then a layer of the green poly netting followed with 20 sheets of the original fast grass. Have a lot to do.

    I'm just ready for you to finish the dang thing. Then we can take yours instead of mine. That way I won't have to clean all the Twinkie wrappers, and the unbelievable amount of shells you go through out of the bottom of my boat everytime lol.
