RE: Frames for screens
Thanks Carl and John. As for the aluminum frame, I really need to find an identical piece to replace the one that I dropped overboard. This is the section that holds the screened frame in place. Screws on to the window frame by a flat flange. If I can find a manufacturer for the section or extrusion that I need, I could fashion it myself. Also want to make one for the Galley window which is just makeshift. If you know of anyone who has replaced the aluminum windows, I would love to see if there is a match to mine. I am scouring the web for something to use.
As for the color, I had planned to respray the exterior frames as soon as we complete the "refit" that we are doing now, exactly as Carl has describes. Thank goodness that the weather is cooler.
I nearly finished with a redo of the swim platform. Replaced the teak supports that attach to the stainless supports on the transom. Have made the transom wider not longer by about six inches and sanded all of the teak so it looks like new. Monday or Tuesday, I will refinish it with a product called Teak fix. I hate grey teak. Hope this product is superior to other products I have used in the past. Thanks again for your assistance. Donna
