    Must have's on a new targa

    Work on the new targa starts next week. What's on your list of must have's?

    At this stage the key items are slide out shade, rocket launchers, steaming light, deck light and spotlight mounts and aerial mounts. Aiming for zip down / roll down clears that give the biggest uninterupted field of view possible.

    Anything I've forgotten?

    Cheers
    Craig

    Is a steaming light like a cabin light ?

    His new boat better not actually be steam powered as I don't want to have to shovel coal and pull the anchor

    Lazy prick! I thought I was doing us a favour by not having to pay for petrol!!

    But would it be a step forward or a step back from the balsa raft?

    I'm the shortest decky!

    Good call though. it will have vertical grab handles down both sides of the rear upright.

    I like your thinking however my wife doesn't. The "it came with the boat" line has worked well to date but I'm not sure she'll believe me if the new targa turned up with riggers and radar!

    Other advice was at least reinforce it for radar now so when you want it down the track you can just bolt it on.

    plenty of access for cabling. start adding gps antennas, with radio antennas, radar, cameras, lights, floods... theres a lot of cabling that has to be snaked up there

    just been on afew boats in rough weather and ive had to stretch too far to hang on or it wasnt strong enough too cope with 3-4 people hanging off it

    get plates fitted for outriggers even if you dont plan to use them straight away
    antennas
    cable conduits
    lighting
    radios
    rod storage

    2 rows of rod holders. offset spacing and different angulation fore/aft
    Make your vertical grab rail doubles as a knee brace so the heavy rods dont cause the stainless to crack at the bend
    32mm min diam rear vertical so you can get the aerial cables through.
    Large hole in the base plate so you can run cable up from under the gunwhale
    Make sure you measure the height under the pull out roof with your shoes on.

    I chose zip-up clears, as they roll up and out of the way. Zip down ones end up all over the dash.
    Outriggers will stress your bimini. Make sure it is strong.
