Ordered the Windows and Ports!

I put together the order for Diamond/Sea-Glaze for the windows and New Found Metals for the portholes. The pictures above are of the white poster-board taped inside the windows, ready to be traced and sent in to be built.  I thought the boat looked very interesting like this, without the visual distraction of looking through the openings.  I decided to order the smaller 5″ ports (discussed a few posts ago). 

I printed up a bunch of order sheets and spray-glued one onto each tracing. Better safe than sorry on a multi-thousand dollar order!  This is the front center window. It’s hinged at the top to swing open. All the others are fixed (style D5 if you care :-)).  Sure is a lot of glazing for such a dinky boat.

  1. nice job documenting this project. when we build boats at my shop i try to be diligent in my documenting but by the end of the build i’m sick of the boat, sick of the owner, and looking forward to starting the next boat.

    looks awesome. keep up the good work.
