For now, I'm not putting anything there. Once I re-fit the arch I'll see if I want to put a logo up there.

Looks good... that's the emblem location for 42, 48 convertible.
Aftermarket arch? Since her original factory arch was all molded into the upper superstructure...

Original factory arch. It may appear to be molded in, but it is a separate piece, I took it all apart myself.

The original arch was constructed of plywood covered with fiberglass and gel coat, and screwed to the flybridge surround, you'll find the heads of the screws under the inner skirt of the surround. It was then faired into the surround and cabin top with filler and blended in with gelcoat.

I removed it for over the road transport and after refurbing it will bolt it back onto the flybridge surround in it's original location. I do not plan to fair it back into the surround though so it can be removed somewhat easily. This will happen after launch since it cannot be attached prior to transport back to the launch facility, it's too tall with it attached.

The cabin top/roof is also a separate piece from the cabin sides. The top is screwed onto the cabin under the aluminum trim pieces on each side of the cabin. I think it may be bonded as well, but I'm not sure I haven't taken that apart and don't plan to.

As a point of interest, the entire flybridge surround was originally easily removeable with quick disconnects for the hydraulic steering and all electrical running through a couple of large multi conductor cables.

The arch being faired into the surround as well as the cabin top was done after the surround was fitted and makes removal difficult. It's evident from how it was built that the flybridge console and helm were all assembled in one piece including steering, instrumentation, etc. and then fitted into place in one piece. In stock form with no arch, it would be fairly easy to remove the entire flybridge by just unplugging some things and removing a bunch of screws.

Gotta love working on your bottom... Did I say that correctly? I am in awe of all the work you are getting done.
