His is my boat coming into the ramp on a lake near me. This was on the last day of the season so I had ditched my palmfronds. I really need to get a different hull to go with this motor, my vbottom gets tight with 3 people on board.

what's that material around your railing? I take it that is to help with keeping the rails from getting swamped? Does it actually displace enough to help?

That is actually my duck blind. I wedge palm fronds (the big ones) between the pipe and my hull. They actually do really well. As for the material it is non corrugated hdpe pipe.

Sounds like a good and quick way to attach some fronds.

Hunting down in Florida palm fronds are easy to come by and if you cut them a day or two prior to hunting you get a really nice color out of them. It hides my boat pretty well and its super convenient and easy to set up compared to some other blinds I have tried in the past. This year we were able to actually stand up (on the benches) and shoot, I don't recall having many birds flair at all this year.

Where in Florida are you . I'm up in North Florida close too Jax's . 10-4 on the palm fronds , pretty much what I used . Weather it's lake George , Merritt , or the St Johns , it works .
