despite the fact that I am happy with the deck transit of the solar panel. I am still afraid that I will stand on top of it and break it.

so I decided to make a stainless steel protective cover.


first I made a template and transferred it to the stainless steel. then cut it out using angle grinder en fold over the edges. welded up the corners en give her a little buff and shine.
glued it over the deck transit using sika.

With this I have picked up my welding skills a bit which I need for my next project

now that I have picked up my welding skills, it is time to make stainless steel dinghy davits.

the transom is a bit thin and flexes a bit under heavy load so I made up some custom brackets. also the davits are placed to the center of the schip due to the placement of the swim step, therefore I had to make a spreader bar and some more bits.
finally braced it whit backing plates and made two sets of pulleys for hoisting the walker bay.

when the dinghy is lowered and the spreader bar is removed the davits can pivot in nylon bushings to the side for easy access to the swim platform.
