|Great!! Our stainless order has arrived and now the fun can begin!|
|The toe rails
under and around the radar arch need to be very strong.
Not only because people will be standing on them, but
because the main cleats may have a drogue or sea anchor
line pulling over them. Also the spring lines while tied
to a pier must go over this to prevent chafe or deck
5/8" rod is a real bugger to bend in the flatbar bender but looks really nice once done. In the photo ( right ) The port rail is ready to go on. Bending was just by eye because I have lost my protractor thingy again.
|They also needed a slight curve to follow the aft deck. The samson post at the bow made a suitable bender for that.|
|Next, some handrails are
added for the swim ladder. A left hand vertical rail and
a short horizontal rail seemed to be logical. Another
will be added to the right later but isn't priority as it
will be on the extension of the transom.
Below are a couple of views. One of the swim ladder extended and the other of the positioning of the rails. I think it all looks great!!
Just had to try it out!
|Today was a really great day! And the boat looks all the better for it. All ready below to foam it up, winter can't stop that part of the boat from being finished hehe!|
