Brian,
I like that support, I am going to use that.  Off to the shop going to get windshield panels and roof mockup done.

I been thinking (haha) I plan on using 1/2" for the windshield panels rather than 1/4" with 1/4" doubler, might be easier for me.

I used 1/2 inch for mine. Worked great!

Cannon,

Do you mean 1/2" plywood on the deck or the pulpit is made out of 1/2" ?

I thought you had some kind of hardwood on top for pulpit, I like the look and if mine does not seem strong enough I will add something on top.

I did not get done what I wanted to, I have windshield skins mocked up and supports ready for the roof templates to mark the windshield skins but ran out of gas.

Cannon,

Just re-read your post, I get it, you were referring to the windshield panel.

Brian,

I am having trouble understanding the windshield panel overlap with the windshield doubler.  The manual shows 1/2" setback of the front edge of the windshield doubler and when mocking up the windshield panels is states to mark the cut off 1/4" outside the edge of the doubler.  Is this going to leave a 1/4" ledge?

Yes ... the 1/2" on the sides allows variation in side panel thickness, and if you use 1/4" side panels, it'll leave a stylin' 1/4" little ledge at the front end.  You want stylin', right?  LOL... You've got it dialed in, no problem.

Brian

PS: You're boat's looking great, BTW!

Thank you!

I took some time off, and just getting back on task.  Windshield panels are made, just have to install.  Little things like this makes me feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It's a long project - good to take a break now and then.  You always know when to get back at it ... that's when you're ready.  It's worth it in the end and about 10 minutes after it hits the water, you'll forget the time that it took to build it!
