Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Jimbob, I think he is trying to create a stop for the entire window frame onto which he can put a gasket to seal the window shut. Kind of like a door stop on a door jam

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl: There are router guide bushings of various sizes that fit into your router. Amazon has a set "POWERTEC 71051 Router Template Guide Bushing Set w/ 10pc Brass Precision Machined Components and Molded Carrying Case: for about 20 bucks. This should do what you are after.

Welcome Elbro. THis should be interesting. I don't think I've seen anyone build this design.

Re: New member, figured I’d introduce myself

Welcome. Not many ski tows built, but I believe the ski tow and malahini are the same hull design. DO a little at a time. Don't worry about how long it takes. Many here are going slowly but surely.

Re: modified malahini

Thanks Chug. That's the plan.

This light fixture doesn't currently have a light socket in it. Any suggestions for what to use? Would like LED.

Re: modified malahini

Today I decided to get out my windshield brackets. Here are picture of both the bow light and brackets.

With the brackets on the boat, the light seems much better. I think this one will work fine.

At Carl's request, here are pictures of the light on the boat.

It looks just a little too big for my boat.

What fasteners for bow light?

I have an old bow light that is probably chromed pot metal. DO I use stainless screws or something else? (Will there be galvanic reaction?) What ever I use do I send them to the chromer as well so it will match the light?

Re: EPOXY STRENGTH TEST- ON YOU TUBE

I have planned on going to their open house for the last two years, but something always comes up that weekend. As I watched their struggles, I kept here Kens' tag line in my head.

Re: modified malahini

Also, looking at nav lights. I have this one. It needs to be rechromed. bowlight2.jpg bowlight1.jpg I think it might be a little too big. I think I have another somewhere, but can't find it right now. At $80 bucks a light to rechrome, I only want to do one. If I can find the other, if someone wants ...

Re: modified malahini

The guy who is making my cut water came over to do some test fitting. I thought it was too soon, but he wanted to get started.
