    Cheers Dirtyfuzz. Arnolds Fibreglass has a skin from a mould that he has so plan "A" is to see how that sits then make the necessary verticals to adapt it and get it painted (no gelcoat this time). Plan "B" is a full custom glass over strip foam gig that to be perfectly honest isn't something I am looking forward too if plan A doesn't come off.

    Thanks Col. Few little finish related issues that the perfectionist with OCD in me isn't entirely happy with but nothing major. The metallic colour matched silicone is a difficult product to get exactly right.

    This may be a 3rd option or maybe an extension of the 2nd option you have
    Have you seen what these guys are doing from the build on THT? Quepos.

    Looks like glass over foam. Main reason for strip planking is to get the wanted compound curves in the front corners. The only other way would be to thermo form the foam sheet but I don't have the gear to do that. Do you have a link to the actual thread - I couldn't find it. Cheers.

    I think he formed it up around pre bent tube or SS
    If you pre drilled the pipe it would be useful to attach the top after it was built.

    The link to the thread https://www.thehulltruth.com/showthr...0&goto=newpost

    The guy runs a fishing charter business and build and renovates his fleet. Interesting stuff.

    If you have some time check out the boat building as well as the fishing

    Nice job mate. It will be very sweet being able to hang stuff of the roof over and under and walk on it.

    Cheers

    Probably no walking but it will get used to store empty jerry cans when I finally get around to dragging it to 1770 or DI. I am certainly looking forward to having some handrails on the roof so I can clamber up the gunwale without falling in the drink.

    20190103_085945.jpg20190103_090002.jpg20190103_090413.jpgFirst look at the lid today. Had something different in mind initially but having sat this on the roof for about two hours, looking at it, going away, coming back, climbing all over it, going away, coming back - you get the drift, I have decided less is more ...so this is roughly what she will look like. I've got to fit a foam layer and underside skin and the vertical mating surfaces yet but it gives a pretty good idea.

    Could get very hot under the screen
    I did this to reduce the sun impact.

    Re: Seafarer Victory - Hardtop conversion.

    Sorry Scott, I took a shortcut that didn't work

    Hope this is better, ie more overhang less screen open to the sun and less heat on electronics. Still gets very hot but.

    Re: Seafarer Victory - Hardtop conversion.

    I hear you Chimo. It's actually deceptive but the top of the screen is further forward than the original clears were - the screen is more vertical. I did have a little bit of wiggle room as there is a bit of overhang at the back so it's certainly something I will look at but probably cant go too far or it will look weird given it's full height glass. Might have to enclose it and get aircon .
