Re: Future Brown Water Cruiser: 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit

It's nice when stuff that's been in the works for years finally just sorta falls into place.

I can't believe how nicely some of my chrome is polishing up. I was dreading the bill from the chrome shop, but most of this stuff is looking so good I won't bother sending it off.

Re: Future Brown Water Cruiser: 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit

Thanks ZH. But unfortunately, my blog for today is extremely grumpy. I'm very frustrated with the fabricator who said he could make an aluminum windshield frame that fits my boat and looks good, all without damaging my paint. That was back in October 2014. The frame he delivered in late April 2015 looks OK outside, but it doesn't look good on the boat because it doesn't fit...and he damaged my paint. And he says he's done with the job. And now I have my doubts about splashing this fall.

Some pretty stuff has to get done before the boat can splash. Other pretty stuff gets done on weekday nights. The windshield frame...definitely gotta get done before I can order glass, which has to all get installed before I splash.

While I stew over how to resolve the windshield frame problems, I'm full-steam ahead in other areas.

Thx ZH!

I can't let the windshield frame saga slow this down too much, so we're blasting ahead on other things.
