      I see you are having problems getting your pictures to work. I highly recommend using momentoffame.com to post your pictures. Once the picture is posted there bring up the picture and right click on it, go down to properties, then highlight the link, then copy this to the image icon as you create your post. It works every time.

            Hey that came out really nice. I like your hard top/canvas combo. Great job on the wood as well. Congrats

              I made some changes to your post[][][]

              The boat looks great! What do you have ont he transom where the motor is mounted? Looks like a white jackplate or something that has the motor set back 4-5".

                Thanks everyone! The jack plate is 4x4x4x3/8 alum.channel.The motor sits back 4"&up6".Inside the transom is a 4x2 alum.channel spanning the width and everything is through bolted making it very strong.I made the hardtop & enclosure myself out of 5052 .080 alum.It has a foam core which makes it very quiet when plowing throught a chop.The fuel tank hatch is also aluminum.I also made the radar arch,rodholders & top supports out of S.S.tubing.I guess it pays to work in a custom sheetmetal shop.She also got a new welded S.S.bowrail.The fuel tank I had made at S.P.tanks because of insurance reasons.

                    Got any detail pixs of making the top?

                    What brand is the hatch on top of the cuddy. I like Black.

                    I just sent the window pattern's off today to http://www.wynneinc.com/

                    The frames will be Black and smoke gray tint on the laminated glass.

                    That hatch would match well.

                      Sorry but no pix on fabracating the hardtop,built it before I knew this website existed.The bow hatch is original and was striped,primed &painted.My next project is to have the windshield frame sandblasted and powdercoated black.
