Making the windscreen was the single hardest thing I have done on the boat so far, trying to match the curvature of the cabin and having to make each side individually because they are not a mirror image just about drove me nuts. The only fancy tool I had at my disposal was a linisher. I still have to make some small timber trims to hide the screw but that's a later job. If all goes well I might bring it to Narrandera although its not really the type of boat that we're about...we will see!

Another quick update, windscreen finished and most of the wiring is back in. Everything appears to be working as it should, will fit a fully charged battery tomorrow and see if i can get it running. Will do maiden voyage in the next couple of weekends ( time permiting)......all very exciting really!

Looking good Ray, its good to see someone is doing work on their boat. I won't be getting much done because I am stuck working in Richmond NSW for the rest of the year and it is an 8 hour drive to go home for the weekend.
Keep up the good work.
