Sorry it isn't better but I found this one taken in the Bahamas and it's faster that waiting until I go to the boat. The plate starts at the rub rail. So far no gel coat damage. I'm happy with this addition.

Come down to sunny warm Florida and have UMT measure you up then head to the Bahamas and when you come back they will install it.

My strike plate is a little different. The boat came with a grey pvc strike plate held on with 1/2" carriage bolts. It was ugly and cracking. I ask Sean if he could make one out of metal. He had other ideas. The holes were filled, glass over, and the bow was refaired. He then stretched molding paper over it and laid up the first layer of bi-axial cloth and polyester. When it cured, he popped it off the bow and did the subsequent layers on his work bench. It's about 1/4" thick, held on with twelve #12 screws around the perimeter, nicely faired, and painted to match the hull. Sean's reason was that it would be easy enough to remove the screws (no bedding), fair and repaint it, if I should ever strike it. I agree, and like how it turned out.

You have the most custom of any custom boat floating. Neat stuff.

In our modern days of 3D printing I found out that it s possible to 3d print using a alloy of metal and resin, and when I say metal I mean stainless steel or titane. This may be a good option knowing that now there is some application that allow to create a 3d model from a simple cell phone camera.

Some matter for thought )

Are you saying that a cellphone photo will give you the correct angles of bend and correct highth and width to fit the bow? I know it can duplicate a shape and size that you have.

Well not exactly a picture but now some software allow you to use your cell phone or tablet camera to turn around an object and generate a 3d model of an object. SO a bow is just an object so I guess it can follow the same process. It could be possible to scan a bow to get the angle shape and from this design a bow plate (not sure I am clear in my description).

Your clear but my simple noncomputer literate brain can't comprehend how it can do that.

I had a personal encounter with this last year. Had to have a section of my jaw replaced with live bone from my leg, laid out over a metal 'plate' which is now part of me. The metal was custom formed in the lab in advance based on a CT scan of my jaw and the surgeon just dropped it in with no fussing about fit. Pretty cool technology.

Let say you want to 3D scan your anchor (which I am sure is the best anchor ).
Basically the software is taking photo in burst mode while you are moving your phone all around your anchor then reassemble the pictures "side by side" in volume and extract the object from its surrounding in the images. What is left is a 3D model of your anchor.

Hi Lou

That I do understand as you can get all around my best ever anchor but to do a bow plate you only have two dimensions. How does it determine the bend to fit the bow?

Inquiring minds.

Well if you go around your bow you will have pictured your bow surface then modify the model to set a thickness and you get a 3D model of a bow plate. Same process as making a mold but a numeric mold. Not sure I correctly express my thinking
