For all intents & purposes it's done and ready to build a boat around it.

I apologize for the crappy pics.



I'll be off to the plastics shop tomorrow to get some thermo-form plastic to make the backside covers.



Don't think I'd ever do this again. Final price tag was somewhere near $800.

Thnx to everybody who commented and made suggestions. I took them all to heart on this lil' project. Standby....

Aside from repairing the fire damage to our old boat (which we have to sell before we can start our new trawler) Lori (KnottyGirlz) has been working feverishly on replacing the zip in windows in our old boat. The old ones were absolutely toast, cracked, crazed, broken and yes that is Duct Tape holding them together.



I think they came out perdy good! She worked hard on them and had to learn as she went. The old Singer 500A industrial sewing machine was a bit of a b*tch to get working with the heavy binding tape etc. but she muscled through it.



If you look close you can see they're not professionally done but that's ok. I like them and I hope the new owners do too! Standby....

It looks professionally-manufactured to me. Well done, knottygirlz!

I'll pass that on Tao. Thnx.

I forgot to mention the amount of foul language that was coming from the basement as she was sewing! It was so thick even this ole' sailor blushed!

I can appreciate those who do that sort of thing for a living. There's some real talent & skill required to do that kind of work.

Wow . . . I'll say! Very, very nice job. (So, Rick, did you learn any new words from knottygirlz before the last snap snapped? )

The last few panels I hardly heard a peep from the basement!

I can see how she improved as she went along. The stitching got straighter etc. It was a big job for a newby. New sewing machine, new materials etc. We're lucky we had the old windows to use as templates. I have an appreciation for those that do this kind of work, it's hard.

Well we had a conversation about the next project. I'm sayin' she's gotta take her game to a new level for the new boat. She wants to make windows with zip up panels that leave the screens in place, ya know what she means? I also want to get the sliding track system and ditch as many zippers as possible. This'll mean raising the bar quite a bit. She said she "bled" for this project and I'm sure she'll bleed more on the next one!

We're off to Boston week after next to pick up the CnC cut plywood kit for the trawler! Standby.....

Hi Knottybuoyz, the boat project is realy taking wing lately. If you haven't got your steering gear yet I have a trunkfull of Hynautic stuff from a project that I had to give up on and we are selling the place and moving back to the mainland. I've found homes for most of the things I wont have room for anymore without my shop or garrage but there still some odds and ends to deal with. There are two helms, an Autohelm autopilot pump, a pressure regulated reservoir tank, and two steering rams, one is bronze and quite robust, the other is aluminum. If you are interested I should be home again tomorow and I,ll take some photos for you.
