Yeah that guy has a thread on here somewhere. Iv read little bits of it. Stitch and glue, not ribbed framework like my baby is. Was following for a little while but he keeps directing you to go and follow that external blog of his. That not my cup of tea so stop watching.

Thanks anyway 👍

Well I've started making a Radar Tower. Had some off cuts laying around the garage so figured I'd have a play and see what I come up with.


Early stages but I pretty sure you can see what I'm aiming for as a finished product.

Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

Well I got some pressies this week.

My Furuno RDP-149 with the 320 GPS receiver arrived on Monday just in time for my birthday and today the Furuno RDP-118 and 1832 Radome arrived.

Put all of this together with the Lowrance HDS12 or the Garmin 1040XS I am yet to buy and AXE can lend herself to the Australian Navy as a warship haha.

I can't thank dimer2 enough for his extreme generosity and his patients during the posting process.

I've never had radar or seen a radome up close and I must say; its fkn huge! It has dwarfed the tower I made today so I'll have to either make a bigger one or put the radome straight on the roof instead and leave the tower for smaller items!

Don't forget the higher the radome is the better the reception, picture and range will be.
Build a new mast , it will be worth it, trust me.
Cheers

Yeah, that is the mast on Moonstruck. Two GPS receiver antennae on the "wings", steaming & anchor lights on top, remote operated spot light on forward "wings" point and radar antenna forward.

That looks very nice. Do you know what your air draft is? I can't make out any hinges but your avatar looks like your boat has a fairly low profile.

Matt - That's a near duplicate to mine. I do not recommend ever pressure washing near or actually on the FURNO name. I did. Before I realized the letters were tearing off. Soooo, in my wisdom, I thought to myself... self... it will look nice all white... therefore I continued pressure washing till all letters were gone. Soon it became evident that the shattered pieces of lettering (1/16" to 1/2" jagged, irregular o.d.) had randomly flown around and hundreds had become flat against my fly bridge front as well as up on its pilot station's fiberglass dashboard.

That was over six years ago. Besides the fact that the blue FURNO name pieces all were extremely well affixed to where they landed (hours of detailed clean up) - I occasionally to this day find a random piece in some joint somewhere on or around the bridge!

Good luck in your installation.

I just got the bow roller mounted along with a new anchor winch (and re-cored the foredeck) just before I left for work. Its looking fairly snazzy with all that nose jewellery. The roller turned out to be a perfect fit for my Marsh stockless anchor.
I still have a bit of fiberglass work and wiring for the winch when I get home next week. I'll get some snapshots then.

Matt, just an observation. Your interior panelling looks really good, but I would urge you to leave gaps in the panelling for venting. Wood structures like air, many of the numerous boats I looked at before buying had venting issues. Maybe a beer or two with an old-time wooden boat builder might help (the beer alone is a good idea)?

Now, having stood up on my hind legs, I have no idea how the extensive application of the epoxies you are using might change that?
