The trailer is worth a little over a grand. The rails can be scrapped for around $75 recovery and the top can be sold outright for $100 recovery. The front swivel seats can be used for shooting stations. This is a decent start to a project duck blind. In reading it doesn't seem like he will take less but it is a good start even at that price.

I still think the way to do one of these is to strip the deck completely. Hinge the rails at the bottom and pin them at the corners so they can be folded down the sides when hunting or raised when under way. Permanently cover the inside of the rails with brown duck canvas, camo netting, grass, or other material same as the deck. Sink three coffin blinds with doors in the middle deck. Use simple K.I.S.S. outboard stick steering with a hand rail. Throw some full body cormorant or seagull decoys on the deck as confidence decoys and you would have a low profile island diorama to hunt from. This would be for serious hunting that could take pressured birds, not comfort. Though it would not be too hard to sink a couple extra battery boxes in the deck to run simple 12 volt automotive heaters or heated mats to heat the coffins for a morning.

Sniper I saw one where they stripped everything off of the deck. They used layout blinds on the deck and camoed everything. With a good camo job you could pull up to any shoreline and it would kill even the most educated birds. Doing it you way would be a whole lot easier than what I went through. Mine was a massive undertaking. I built mine for reasons other than killing birds or I would have gone lower in the profile. My single reason for constructing this thing was my wife. She is an adventurer but 0230 hours sitting in the freezing rain would not be her idea o an adventure. So she has been cut out of public opening weekends for a long time. She would rather not lay down in the bottom of a boat or just lay out on the ground and go to sleep. Had she been with me 5 years ago at lake X with Garret and them, she would never duck hunt again. That was miserable to say the least. Had she been with me when that 300 pound black bulldozer of a hog come busting through the bushes 3 feet from me while I was sleeping on the ground, she would never do that again. I been in a few tight spots, scared for m life over the years. There is no reason to fear a hog. When your by yourself in the south Texas brush, sleeping on the ground, you wake to hear hell coming through the scrub brush and its coming fast, you turn your flashlight on just in time to see this monster of a pig 3 feet from you, your mind can trick you for a second.

That was as bad as it gets. I will never forget that first drop of rain that hit my forehead. I said "Yall feel that rain?" and my guys said "What rain?". It was as if the bottom come out of a bucket right at that very moment.
