Weather

I know you folks up north are still in winter. However, the weather here in Dallas, TX is just cruel. This week it was in the 70s and 80s. For the weekend we are looking at highs in the 50s. We have been on this seven day cycle for weeks.

If water collects there could some anti-freeze be put in to prevent freezing and then pulled out in the spring with a wet/dry vacuum?

The prior owner replaced both hatches with ones of his design. They are made from an aluminum frame with lexan. They work very well, and are strong enough to stand on. Here is a picture which shows an overview of the sliding hatch. If you are interested I can take some detailed photos to post. Jim h...

Singer 401

I bought a Singer 401 Slant O Matic on Ebay for $241, including shipping. I got it to make a cover for my boat.

I got some Sunbrella end pieces to make a tarp to cover my boat.

The prior owner made the change. He was an artist and a welder. Attaching the rudder to the stern is not hard with Rudder Gudgeons. I had the transom reinforced. The rudder head is a challenge.

I don't have the bulkhead you have there in front of the shoes. Someone removed it. Gives me a place to put boat hook and whisker poles. However, I think I need something to help support the bridge deck.

Gus:

I have thought about adding a step also. However I want to place it so it bridges the gap at the top. Also I am going to drill a hole for a pin so the step will stay in place, but can be removed.

I was wondering why you placed the step wher you did.

Well I just guessed. I measured the width of the cockpit to where I wanted to place the pivotes. Then the height of the boom, and I allowed for clearance. Then I got the length for the two bow cover.

When I go out to the boat I will measure the height and width.

Which Hatch?

Do you mean the main hatch over the cabin?
The Prior Owner of my boat made a new hatch from
aluminium and lexan. You can see it in the picture.
