    Ive been blessed with my first mud boat. Ive had a few cheaper 2 stroke outboards that I have put DIY blinds on. They were made out of conduit and angle brackets, scissor style: you run a pin through the 2 arms to set up the blind.

    My particular design has had lots of issues, mainly being a royal pain to set up, and the angle iron constantly bending.

    This new boat, I want to make a durable, quality, easy to use blind. If any of you would like to share some "do's and dont's," lessons learned, etc..., I would greatly appreciate it!

    Many threads on here you can probably locate with a search.

    This is a fairly rugged design that goes up quick and down. You can choose to use the center pin as well as the top support.
