    We're about to build a floating duck blind out of square tubing and I'm curious what size tubing do yall recommend using? Should the base be larger size tubing than the rest of the frame or all the same? Thanks:tu

    We build the Maximus Deadly duck blind out of a tubing that is metric and it is between 1/2 and 5/8. It is plenty strong, unless you are looking to attach lumber to it. Here is a picture of one of the 2 man modular blinds that can be added to make any size blind you need.

    This second picture is a custom 4 man blind we did for some goose hunters. It has a lower profile than the deadly duck blind and the tubing is 5/8 except for the top cross member that is 3/4", because it has to support the drop/flip door.

    If you are on the water with no floats under the blind, you are certainly floating the fourth. but then again, you just might be sinking the forth also!!:eek:
