I'm loving your choice of a wood frame windshield. That's going to set it off nicely.

Agree - the Geronimo is similar in look and size to the Mist Miss that I'm working on. The wooden windshield will look great but is daunting!

I saw the pictures of your boat on SV Seeker's latest video "Plasma Cutting and Welding TIG and MIG". Looking good

I drilled for the new bow eye. It is ever so slightly off-center but I am not going to worry about that and it is much better. There is even room for the safety chain now. The old bow eye was just not a good idea. It is just a poor design. It loosens itself and was already loose when I took it out today. I just need to seal everything up and do a little touch-up paint. I will put a little blue thread locker on whenever I install it for good.

Cool Matt. How far does it extend past the stem? Mine should be here Thursday?

Carl, there's more than enough to go through the stem and thread the nuts on.

So what size (Length and dia) did you order and where did you get it from?

I needed a little flat spot for the new bow eye. So to seal it up I decided to go ahead and lay in a little piece of cloth rather than just a slather of epoxy. I'm trying to keep the area that I need to touch op as small as possible. I should probably sand out a larger area and feather in a bigger piece of cloth but I'm not going to. Plus, believe it or not, I'm not actually getting water in this area very often.

That should help seal it up well and that bow eye will be much better.

I had the boat out twice last week while we had a little preview of some warmer weather. The new bow eye is 100% better. It's good not to have to worry about that now. Plus there is room for the safety chain thingy as well as the winch strap hook.

I have started some interior additions. One will be port and starboard boxes between frames two and three. They will accommodate speakers, cupholders and a small storage box. I have also made a mount for the "marine" receiver that will mount under the dash. I had a look inside the receiver. It is not water-resistant in the slightest on the inside. I can see where the faceplate might be. So I wanted to mount it where rain can't get to it. This precluded some of the other ideas I had for mounting it. But I'm liking this spot. It is now in reach of the navigator. Does anybody have any suggestions?
