Finally got the split house panel on the boat, now to get it bolted in and move on to the pilot install & reinstall the helm. Still cold here and yup still have snow on the ground, winter just doesn't want to leave this year.

Ronnie inspired me to try making some fiberglass angle to use to mount the split house walls with. Used up a lot of scrap pieces of mat i had laying around along with some cloth that i never used for anything.

Turned into a nice day today so i was able to peel back the tarps on the boat to finally give myself a look what the house addition will look like from a distance. I like what i've done and think its going to make the rig a lot more comfortable.

pecked away at the jobsite today, bolted in the aluminum angle that holds the partition, got the door jam bolted on and made a pattern for the piece that will butt up against the windshield. Tomorrow its a trip to the plastics joint to go threw the scrap pile to find a nice piece of white UHMW sheet goods and a piece of clear plexi for the window.
cardboard and hot glue gun made short work of making a pattern

rough cut out of window.

finally pulled the blue protective sheet off the windows, wow nice bright cabin interior even with blue tarps covering the boat.

Nice job on forming the starboard Steve, I never thought about bending that stuff. Boy can I think of some projects now. :eek: Hey I made a metal brake almost like that, No trap wire for a tray though. :D.

No place around here to buy handles and i bought the stainless outside handle from a outfit online. I've got lots of oddball pieces of plastic so i figured i'd try it and see what it looked like. I made that break when i first started building shrimp pots, same thing i had the scrap angle laying around so i cobbled it together and used it for a few years till i sprung for one of those fancy benders for the trap wire that the guy in rhode island makes. Thats not a tray its just pieces of wire from roll ends, i just can't bring myself to throw out any wire(or anything else:rolleyes:) you never know ????

Sounding like a boat builder Steve, always a use for something.

My problem is i can't remember where i put the stuff when i need it! I've been out of gillnetting for 3 years and just got around to selling off the patch web had, i was sorry to see it go, you never know i might be dumb enough and buy another permit for 200 grand and go fish choking again :rolleyes: with the Snow Squall.

cut the hole for the controls today, only had a couple of hours to work on the boat but finally getting inside, tomorrow i'll tackle moving some wiring to cut the hole for the helm, it going where the wheel is hanging. Ordered the solenoid from Rose's yesterday so the oily mess time is getting close. Couple of interior house shots, it takes more time just thinking how to lay out everything and where to put it with out tearing the whole boat apart than just doing the job. Oh did i mention how happy i am that it SNOWED today !!!

Change in plan on the steering going to put the old helm outside next to the hauler and use a jog lever inside.
