Get your self some chicken wire and weave grasses and braches in and out of it. mount the wire to some PVC piping that you can stand up and some to hang over the sides like panels.
we put of some walls and then just went out and got some of the cotton tails and tall weeds from a swampy area near a friends house and have used the boat for two years and it works perfect we have to replace a bit here and there but not to much and not very often
My old boat I had painted in a camo with some branches and reeds overspaying them to give an outline. I attached A few bungee cords inside and out on the rail of the boat(black ones) used them to hold bushels of reeds and grasses from the area I was hunting to blend in a bit. For the inside i a piece of burlap painted camo until I was able to get a piece of camo cloth from wal mart.
i agree with all i hunt ducks alot and they all will work i made a re bar frame and wired chicken wire to it and put hay and branches it works great
Everything above is good advice. I'd also suggest painting the boat as well. Rustoleum makes great sprays in matte finish that would do a good job. Just alternate brown, tan, olive drab, and a little grey.
yea weaving brush in and out of chicken wire works really well, thats what i did on my sunken blind to make covers another thing i like to do is cut down a lot of brush similar to the surroundings and make four to five in bundles and tie them with twine they work good to go over your head so the bird cant see you but you can look through them and they move easily
i agree with everyone. I suggest pvc bc of the weight. then tie chicken wire to it. then a great branch to use is willow trees. cut in summer and they will hold leaves forever and they are very durable. and wonderful camo. you also will need to spray the boat.
All you have to do is break up the profile with something that is the same color as the surroundings. There are no straight lines in nature, or anything that looks like the gunwales of a boat. Put a burlap bag over the motor.
