Default Killer Delete boat blind, two point oh

I had the privilege of sitting inside James' boat before and I studied his blind that day.
I then, as a refresher searched here and looked at some pics of some here he helped build.

I also stole an idea off the internet for a drill-ess mount.

The C claps that hold blind down can be found at Lowe's along with all the other supplies.

I ended up tac welding all the nuts on the bolts and cutting them flush. And got all the EMT wrapped in electrical tape today. Going o paint the unistrut tomorrow I hope.

My new to me boat should be ready to go soon. It's a 15'4" fisher with a 40 horse stick steering mercury. Runs 34 MPH with me and the wife in her. Almost scarey fast for a welded Jon boat.

Not mine....
Killer delete had the idea for the blind.
I stole the idea with the C clamps and used the best of both ideas.

Comes off and on easily. Locks down in place well too. I think I'll be happy for years with this setup

Thanks for the comments guys.

Looks great. The good thing is you can change this blind to make to make it work for your boat and what you need.

Yep. Fits any boat you build it to. It really is easy too. I did it all by myself without any heartburn

3/4 EMT conduit was about $5 - 4 pieces

The unistrut was 20 something. Maybe $25?

The bolts I had but I'd guess you could buy all the bolts and nuts and washers for $10-15

The C clamps we're around $6 each for the size I got I think.

Then I bought the 10 pack of electrical tape for $5-6 and used three rolls

No reason a $100 bill couldn't build a blind for most any boat.

I might have to use your design. I have been trying to figure out a way to put something on the aluminum bass tracker after we finish with the stencil / camo.

Wipe your strut vinegar and let it sit for a couple days before you paint
