Just finished first blind, 8 footer. Sturdier than most skid blinds. Was pulled with ease by a side by side. Will paint everything brown and use plywood as a back.

Anyone know what a blind like this is selling for?

Here's an idea on pricing. I'b be careful how much you sell them for initially. If you're weld quality is solid, then you might have something.
Is that a greasable hinge for the drop down door?
I would cap all that square tubing, don't want wasps getting in there, or water getting in them bottom ones and just sitting.

Wow, I was thinking way less than those prices! I’ve got caps for all the tubing. $850 anyone? $1000 for a 12 footer?

pond king is probably a little ridiculous.
I'd sell it for somewhat cheap noting that it's a prototype. Then take some feedback on what they did or didn't like and go from there.

Can also use flat angle iron (I think that’s what it’s called) on skids, and 1x1s on most of frame- weight very important on larger ones
