Hi I just bought a compass28 Australia
built and they have classic lines a bit like a GRP H28. But they just don't sing trad or classic toe and I think it's in the detail. I would love to put in brass portholes and cowels but this yacht is another stepping stone and I don't want to throw money
So while looking at my options and emailing some plating companies that do plastics I thought perhaps there is a company already producing ABS plastic cowels with brass plating at an economical price
Or better yet any cheap
real ones available? I would think India
would produce some cheap
ones but can't find anything. There was a post about west marine
having some for a bit over $100 but when I went to thier site they are like $300 ea which is too rich for my blood.
While on the subject the yacht has new portholes that are white aluminium framed. I'm thinking of using a high quality gold or brass metalic paint
over top. Has anyone done this sort of thing and with what result.
Other things on mymind are using some teak
alternatives in the cockpit
At the moment everything is pure white and there needs some contrast.
Any suggestions welcome.
