    Still a work in progress but figured I'd share a few pic with you guys. This is my first flats boat as I've always had an aluminum flat bottom boat which are real easy to hide. I hand made the whole blind from emt conduit and bimini top parts hopefully I can get my kids on some birds now! 20171116_151503.jpg 20171116_151503.jpg 20171116_151503.jpg 20171111_180416.jpg 20171115_134349.jpg 20171115_134651.jpg 20171115_144224.jpg 7 20171115_134349.jpg d

    Looks good! Can you tell it’s there when you have the blind off? I’d love to do something like this for my boat

    No it lays pretty flat. I can still walk the rails to fish

    Thats a stable platform! I'd scrap the windshield, give you more room to swing guns around with the blind up.

    That’s awesome! How did you attach the blind to the skiff?
