Actually I used PVC pipe the rounded edges cause a softer edge because nothing in nature looks like a perfectly stenciled grass pattern. I was pleased with it got the idea from YouTube just google camo painting duck boats

I used 100 grit sand paper and a little sander, 2 cans of rustoleom primer, I would have went with one can of filler primer first because it sprays on thicker too fill in the scratches and than 2 cans of or regular. I used three cans of OD rusteoleum camo paint and one can of khaki and some PVC pipe to stencil the reeds at random just whatever looked good. For the rails I used spray on bed-liner and for the bottom I used two quarts of roll on bed liner make sure that your rollers are made to withstand the chemicals in the liner, regular ones will pull apart. I just bought extras and changed them out because I didn't feel like paying 18 dollars for a kit when I could go to Lowes and get 2 rollers (one for a friend) and 4 foam refills. the one place I cut corners to save money and I wouldn't if I could do it again is masking tape. Buy the green tree frog kind that actually sticks not the blue 99 cent 3M kind every time id lay a straight line and go do the other side it had peeled off and fallen down again and when it did stick my lines bled. also don't get over eager and peel the tape before the liner full sets up trust me. heres a little video on the reeds alos keep a wash cloth handy two wipe the paint off the pvc or it will start running down the pipe all over your hands

Removed a seat and added a blind this weekend also worked all the burs off the prop so it would stop cavitating. I'm
going to add a coat of khaki or OD to the inside soon because white is well, very white.

Perhaps it's time to resurrect the long-defunct "Gheenoe Camo Photo Contest"...
