    looking for some ideas on a pontoon boat blind. i was told the boat is 23' by about 6'. it will be used in a dry to marshy field and will be on a trailer. it will be used for some older gentlemen at our club that cannot do a pit or layout.

    thanks
    scott

    So it'll not be floating? Will it ever be?

    Looking to do the same thing, want to make the walls/top foldable so I can store it in the off season under cover.

    no it wont float. i think it will remain on the trailer. it will be placed most likely on dry ground that may get a few inches deep at most if we have a big rain...

    Why not just build a regular blind then?

    That's what I was thinking. What are we missing; why the need for the boat?

    Build you a “scissor” rig. Best of both worlds.

    A pontoon boat on a trailer? Heck you'll be at about 4 feet plus above grade at floor elevation.... I agree with previous post, lose the trailer and boat. If you need to move the blind for the off season, make it that you can winch it onto a flat trailer. ....Or am I missing something?
