Hardtop/Windshield, Propane tanks, Solar Panels Installed
I have nearly completed the hardtop and windshield installation. Installed the propane tanks on the pushpit, and installed the solar panels. I epoxied two pieced of 1/4 inch okoume plywood together to make the top and laminated 3 layers of 9 oz glass on top and primed and painted. I made the windshield frames with 1/4 inch thick by 1.5 inch wide 316 ss bar stock. I had a local welder weld them in place after making an elaborate jig to place the bar in while being welded. I predrilled all the bar stock prior to welding so I could screw on mahogany wood trim to dress out the frame. I will then screw 1/4 inch thick lexan on to the mahogany trim and then trim the outside with teak.
