Too many projects - not enough time!!!

by lewlew100 » 25 Sep 2018, 16:48

the pair of roof rails I ordered on the bay have now arrived, but I will not fit them until I have the screen windows fitted as I shall remove the as I am thinking that In may get the screen pillars vinyl wrapped in a dark colour. I have now made the mould for 2 seat pods and the pods have been laid up. I now need to find 2 helm seats. Will post some pics when the glass is in. Geoff.

Are you keeping a rough recording of the actual work hours Geoff?

Do you need any fender baskets. I've got 2x tripples I want to sell.
Used I think but really don't look like they have.

Captain, I do not wish to know how many hours this has taken - not really all that many when you think that it has been spread over such a long time - just too many projects!!!
Thanks for the tip jonatz. Geoff.

Thanks for the offer ChrisH, but I do not yet know what I will need. I am trying to source a pulpit rail which will probably need to be custom built. Please try to see if they will suit shibbs.

Four nice grey hatch covers (two for doors in my seat pods) arrived today along with two others for WH lockers. I went with grey as I like the colour and I think that white would probably be a slightly different shade to the rest of the boat. I am expecting two inexpensive seats(not captains) to arrive tomorrow. Geoff.

Not any more photos yet, but I will post up the latest iteration of what I hope to achieve. The top drawing is of the open fisher, with just two v berths and a porta potti. The centre drawing shows the layout of a small enclosed wheelhouse with a small kitchen/eating area and the bottom drawing shows the side view of the enclosed version. I have not yet decided if the "enclosing" will be soft (just canvas/pvc, semi rigid by sandwiching a thin panel in the canvas or to make it a more permanent arrangement, remembering that this is just a small boat.

The reason I asked about the hours Geoff is that when you may have finally finished everything else, you'll have a record of the build.
It'll come in handy if you ever wanted to make another or even sell on the moulds. :)
