Old work, new work. Cockpit overhead.

Some previous owner had installed a Regular 2x4 top with galvanized joist hanger brackets, and covered with a vinyl floor covering to waterproof it. Lasted since at least 1996. Has been getting pretty punky over last couple years. So I stripped it off.

In process of making new (albeit slightly narrower) overhead. Decided to make it the same width as the existing coaming of the Flybridge so we stopped whacking pilings while alongside a dock. Click image for larger version

Now to take it to boat next weekend for a test fit then back home to glass the top and sides.

I see many people with soft tops, and stainless frames. It was hard to decide. But the absolute joy of stepping out of the cabin on a rainy day under a hard top canít be beat.

NOW THAT looks mighty nice!

Indeed, stepping out on a rainy day and not getting wet is a thrill in itself

Im watching to see how it all looks at the end.

About what does it weigh? How will you attach it all the to the boat?

Thanks.
