i just built a blind using a fairly cheap pontoon boat i found. i changed my mind a dozen times trying to figure out how high-wide-deep-how much overhang etc. finally decided to build it as big and wide as the deck of the pontoon boat--7 1/2 ft wide by 18 ft long.--glad i did. the more room the better and if i'm hunting by myself i just close up the other 2 pull back camo bars and hunt out of my favorite corner.
biggest mistake i did make was making the front wall too high. started out with a 4 ft high front wall and it just didn't feel right not being able to see most of the decoys. waited til the first splt was done and then cut the front wall down to 40" and it feels a lot better:thumbup:.
Thanks I really appreciate you guys taking the time to submit your pics. I love the pontoon design, looks like a serious duck hunting/ party machine. I think I am going to go with a 4'x10'. Again, thanks.
