Beavertail Boat Blind

I installed a Beavertail boat blind on my War Eagle Gladiator 750. Attached are the pictures. It fits really well and looks great. I had to make several modifications to the install instructions and I have another 2 to do to make it fit the boat perfectly. I am going to shorten the front center rod a bit to lower the height and gain a better view. Overall, I think it looks and functions great.

I have a Rancho Safari gillie type cover that I am considering attaching over this blind. I bought the Rancho Safari as a cover to my homemade pop up blind two years ago. That blind looked good and worked well however the welds at the conduit joints and connects rusted and broke after only 2 seasons of use. The Rancho Safari blends in very well in marsh and river bank settings and will eliminate me from having to add brush on each hunting trip.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

That looks great and it looks simple to pop up. I have an Avery that came with my boat. it is cumbersome to put up. Seeing yours makes me want one.

It is simole to pop up and take down. Just flip it over and strap the bungee cords to the front and corners of the boat. The rubber coated arms don't fit the gunwales on the boat properly. The main cross frames could potentially come loose and slide. The backs is much more secure than the front of the boat due to the curve. I'm figure on drilling a one hole on each side of the main support bar and bolting the font to the boat. It will never move of slide then.

Thanks Charlie. It's getting there. Now I need to sell the outboard and put a Pro Drive surface drive motor on her!

Thanks NortherPotterCo! It is a good looking and functional boat for shallow as well as deep water. I really enjoy it.
