Re: Building The Vera Cruise

:( That's a bummer,Carl.If the front window was stationary,you could put hinges on middle post and have aft window open out like wind wing.On the old boat,I think there are 2 upright posts.maybe front window could open too.

Hope you got carbon monoxide sensors on board.I got one on "Chug" and it cost more than your generator.
