do you think adding more grass will help it blend better? im not sure if it will help or if it will make it look like a solid color

Got any photos that arent linked in through a photo sharing site? I love to see what people are doing on their own, but I'm shut up behind a bunch of filters that I have no control over.

Looks great. I painted mine a varity of light and dark shades and found that the boat is concealed mostly by what I pull it into. I mean I have come to the conclusion that the boat could just about be any type of camo as the weeds usually cove it up.

My next paint job will be with the darker shades as I think I would like to match the surface of the water more than anything if possible.

I think most waterfowl camo is too dark, especially as the season progresses. Sit across the duck pond from somebody wearing Advantage Max4 and tell me they don't stick out. A tan burlap sack is better than most waterfowl camo, at least in the cattails and reeds.

Agreed, and on that note alone, I think the boat looks perfect. Nice work!

Yeah my first duck hunting bibs were an old pair of charhart tan bibs, they blended in pretty well. Nice work on the boat, once you bend down some cattails around the boat, get some mud on it, etc... it will blend in fine.

Not dark enough!! Think of it this way.......

when you look down INTO the cattails from above you see nothing but dark shadows. Even from the water level you will see lots of shadows behind the first few rows of cattails.

my $.02
