Please send pix for what you've done

Pictures say a thousand words and easier for me to get ideas. Looking for pix of your works done or in the making!
Lighting, storage, rescue gear / safety gear, installs of generator & dive compressor, mounting of or storage of scuba tanks, entertainment stuff.. You get the idea.. If I know how to post pix I would do one here now and show a few things: new window coverings, rescue / safety gear attached to arch, my litter recycled into our aft storage and suspended in the arch with kayak under it...
Anyway... TY CF for the net work here ...
Looking forward to being more of a cruiser than a docker... Learned a lot from the docks too..

Happy New Years too

To post pics/pix you need to be in the "advanced post" menu.... using a quote will automatically put you there... simply posting, you need to hit the lower right button "go advanced"

The rest is self explanatory under the second option of "manage attachments" browse and upload.....

Alterations to the fridge top to make more room for appliances and rework the interior to include a small freezer.

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

To get more screw to hull clearance, I built this new strut extending the shaft about 8". Needed more water capacity so built this water tank, part of a total fwd cabin remodel (still in progress). Two of many projects on my 50 year old girl. The waves in the top panel of the tank are due to an accident with the sheer requiring a extra full length weld across the top of the tank. It was that or buy another expensive sheet of 316L. No one see's the top of the tank so there you go.

John, I am not sure exactly what details you wish to know. If you ask me something specific I will do my best to answer you.

Cheers
Lisa

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

Lisa, did you do the fridge top or contractor? Cost, hinges used & how was ends finished?
The cockpit area: ruff cost, how was it attached to top, what do u like best and what would u do different? Windshield: materials, does it lift or easy remove to allow wind in your face?
Thanks!
