Boat windscreen

Post by jfc » Fri Mar 29, 2019 7:39 am

Something that has annoyed me for years is my boat windscreen . After having a new canopy made ( too tight ) it made the problem worse . After many years of trying to fix it i decided its time for a new one ( this has also taken a few years ) :lol:

First i needed to make a template of the roof and shape of the cabin .


Lots of laminating and scribing on the river to actually get something to work from and i was ready for the top teplate .

Joining the top to the bottom .

It needed something , more detail and softer edges .

Oh very nice, mate ...I'm assuming that not too many beers were consumed on the river whilst templating ? :lol:

What glue did you use ?

That may be the reason its taken about ten years to make ! Just D3 white glue for the laminating , i'm toying with the idea of fibre glassing it and then glassing it to the boat .

Is this off the boat you were going to make?
