I also made this for the top of the transom - 20ga 304 stainless, got it as #2B, and then polished up using a wheel and some compounds from amazon. I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Man oh man,

People were complimenting me earlier for my workmanship, but this is true workmanship. Very very nice work on that windshield frame. Very nice indeed. :D :D

Carl...it only looks good because you're not standing close to it. Now your window frames...they truly look great!

Impressive. That's a tough bit of fairing to meet the deck and window, great job. Did you laminate the bottom window frame too? Tom

Hi Tom - I tried to steam and laminate originally, but just got too much spring back, which meant I couldn't get the exact curve I wanted. I ended up creating a profile on the deck by using a template windshield, then scarfing two pieces of African mahogany together to make the deck part of the windshield. I screwed that down, then created the correct(ish) angle for the windshield to sit on using a plane and a stick coming down from the top of the windshield.

There are a few things I could have done better - or at least been more careful with - but good enough is good enough right now. Everything is now glued in place, so we'll see if the windshield template still fits.

I was wondering how your windshield was coming along. Looking great.
I see you went with single seats too. I think your really going to like that. I couldn’t be happier with mine.
Keep up the good work. 😀

Hi all. Looking for some advice. Where have you tended to position your fuel vent? I believe they have to go on the side of the boat, but any advice on where? My fuel tank is in the bow.

My plan is to run the line from the vent to the bottom of the deck then back down to the tank to try to prevent water ingress into the fuel.

Hi Sarnian, I see you are from Montgomery County MD. I am from Frederick county MD. I was just wondering where you were planning on launching this boat once you are finished. Because as you know we do not have any lakes fairly close. So I was just wondering if you had any experience with Dargan bend, deep creek, or lake Anna?

Put the fuel vent high on the side of the boat. Make a loop in the vent hose above the vent so that if any water gets in, it does not get down to the tank.
