    Has anyone put the Rancho Safari boat blind material on a Beavertail boat blind? Their site says it's specifically for a Mud Buddy blind but it looks like it would work with some zip ties and possibly trimming. Pictures would help if you've got them! Thanks.

    No pictures but I have a couple of Rancho Safari panels in their snow pattern that originally came with a Mud Buddy Shaggy Blind. I have used them on the Beavertail blind I now have on the boat. I took some black plastic spring clamps (probably bought through Harbor Freight) and have clipped them to the grassing straps on the blind. This is because I wanted to be able to remove them if not hunting against a snowy backdrop. The more permanent, or at least semi-permanent, solution would be to zip tie them to the grassing straps. Hope this helps.

    Yes, I have the Rancho Safari panels on my Beavertail 2200. The panels are about 18' long so they don't completely wrap my 21' boat, but they do basically cover the whole blind. No problem zip tying to the grassing strips.

    Two sheets get it done on my 1800, but mine came from when Mudbuddy was buying the material from Rancho Safari, so sizes may be different that what RS is selling directly.

    Web site says their sheets are 18' long so pull a tape measure across top rails and bow to stern and you,ll have your answer.
