This afternoon at the boat I did a little clean up and then made the templates for the aft enclosure curtains. Iím going to make it out of black sunbrella fabric with black mesh fly screens and clear acrylic windows. One window on the Port side, one on the Starboard and two in the rear with a door in the middle. Iím making them so I can have the whole lot locked up on those rainy days or have the acrylic flaps rolled up on those hot nights to keep out the mozzies or have the whole curtain rolled up to open up the rear deck when the fish are on. Not long till I fire up my trusty sewing machine

Now you're... "Dressing Her Up"!

Can't wait till you take her to the ball... err "Splash"

Don't forget to put a carnation in her most noticable dress flap on that momentous day!!

Good pattern work. I like those year-round enclosures. Your idea sounds solid to me. What's your plan of attack on attaching your new enclosure? Maybe I should just sit back and enjoy the suspense of not knowing yet. lol

Thanks mate.
The tops will be fixed with flexible awning track the two external corners will be YKK zippers. The front side of the curtains will be those push studs and the same as the curtain bottom edges. Hope that makes sense :-)

Greetings,
Mr. H. Looks good. Have you considered turn button clips instead of the push clips or maybe tbc's in some areas? I've found that unless you really keep on top of lubrication for the push clips, they tend to seize up although I suppose the same could be said for the tbc's as well.



I think you can get something similar in plastic as well. Just a thought...

Oh just to see how she runs, my boat sat in the water for 8-9 years while I was working on it. I started worrying about what the bottom looked like. I had to get her on the yard before I went full bore on the inside, I guess your already in the yard. Sheís looking great

Hey, Matt, me mate...


I'm confident that you need some down time, and, that you sure as heck deserve it.

Mental/physical/emotional pressure regarding your SOLSTICE build must be great on you from within yourself and from without regarding your family and friends. Task you chose to accomplish is herculean in scope and nature. I can only imagine the $$$ drain as well as relationship bumps due to your never ending perfection desires and greatly time consuming successes while building SOLSTICE into a beautiful, soulful craft.


Your TF fan base [myself very much included] has become unendingly enthralled at watching and reading about your capabilities that can develop an artistic, useful and valuable large item in physical form; only one in 20 million persons might be able to accomplish what you do so well.

We are voyeurs enjoying your creation as we vicariously try to place ourselves into your head and on-the-set of your building wonderments. And, that 1 in 20M number is only if they were as inventive in design visions and as diligent in work ethics as you... having said that sentence... I raise the bar for those that might come close to matching your accomplishments from 1 in 20M to 1 in 50 million. Does that make you special - Damn right it does!!

Here's to hoping all is well and OK with you and yours. I am [we're all] always ready to continue rooting you on whenever you are ready to get "back aboard" SOLSTICE for proceeding toward one of the biggest and best Splashes ever provided for globally dispersed pleasure boaters to enjoy and wonder in awe at.

I can hardly wait! But take what ever time makes it comfortable for you and yours!!

Your mate.
