You’ve never built with the system? Let’s go through the main steps of this DIY to show you how it works!
1. The parts you’ll need to build your duck boat blind frame
First of all, we have to tell you about Brad. Brad is a seasoned duck hunter who wanted to build a moveable rigid boat blind. He found tinktube when searching online for metal conduit and binimi type connections. He first used this section of our website to understand how the system works. Then he drafted his plans, ordered the parts online, and the rest is history. When he sent us pictures of his build, we were flabbergasted. This very plan is therefore inspired by his project.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re set on building your own duck boat blind frame, we strongly advise you to book a free web session with our experts before you start. You’ll get precious advice, help with designing your plans and answers to all the questions you may have regarding your project!

Brad’s pro tip:
Once the frame was built and installed on the boat, he lightly sanded all the surface and painted it with dull camo colored spray paint.
