Arrival of new windows saved suicide

Man, was I depressed when my Admiral came down with another Red Tide reaction that kept me from the Southern Florida TF Rendezvous in Ft. Pierce. Fortunately, in the nick of time my new pilothouse windows arrived, saving me from the sure suicide that would have come from missing out on draining Don's beer stash. Anyway, here are the windows, ready to install. Very heavy extrusions and great quality. Life saved!

Well, I'll be stopping another half dozen projects to do exactly that. Weather is cool and sunny right now, ideal for boat work, but the infamous Red Tide algea bloom looms. It's got us both hacking and coughing. Hope it doesn't get worse.

The windows I ordered are smaller than the originals, requiring some filling in of the old frames with aluminum flat bar. I be jumping on it tomorrow, but first, to get the old, brittle plastic framed sliders out. They'll come out in small pieces, no doubt. I'll likely publish the project here on TF.

Better be ready to cruise to Fort Pierce next February. That's all I've got to say.
