I'm pretty sure I used 5/8" soft tubing.

Here is a picture of the completed painted pilothouse roof.

Two coats of System Three LPU two part polyurethane paint was applied to the non walking surface areas of the new roof. The walking surface areas on the roof was painted with Interlux Intergrip Non Skid Additive mixed into the paint.

The extra width and length of the new roof allows more toys to be carried. Like my Hobie One 12 sailboat that I bought last fall.

Picture was taken in Ladysmith BC.

Congratulations on a project well done and thanks for taking the time to write up and photograph. You even succeeded in improving the overall look of your boat, at least to my eye.

Thanks for the compliment.

You have a good eye for boat details. I always thought the original roof line and trim was lacking visual appeal and made minor changes to the shape.

Finishing up the Pilothouse Roof Replacement Project. I painted the top of the pilothouse and edging during spring 2019 before going boating.

Prep work before painting the underside of the PH roof.

Picture one shows the connection between the new roof and the existing sides being faired with System Three Quick fair. The original flange (second picture) didn't look right being square so rounded and profiled . Glued a trim piece across the front of the PH to fill the crevice.

Painted the underside with System Three WR-LPU white paint. WR-LPU is a water based two part Polyurethane Topcoat. It dries fast, hard and can be recoated within 24 hours without sanding between coats. I rolled the paint on with a dense foam roller and tipped with a brush

Picture 3 shows the underside of the roof after three coats of paint. I did three thin coats instead of two thick coats to mitigate runs.

Here are pictures of the finished recessed VHF antenna mounts that I started on post #17 above. The antennas and their mounts protruded into the walkway, making the walkway narrow and catching clothes on the mount.

First picture shows the completed antenna recess. The back of the recess and the strap has a piece of white rubber for anti-rattle.

The antenna is closer to the PH wall so the stock antenna mount stuck out too far. The second picture shows the antenna mount after I had the post shortened and a new flange made by a machine shop. There is a recess on the plywood behind the flange to capture the nut.

Third pictures shows the walkway and the antenna. Gained about 2" of clearance in the walkway.

Here are pictures of the completed roof. The roof was widened over the pilothouse doors for shade from sun and rain. The front of the roof was extended to provide more shade. The rear of the roof was shortened to provide more room to walk past the tender.

Next project is to build new pilothouse doors. Both had water in them, causing delamination of the plywood structure. You can see the crack on the door in picture 2. Will begin posting when I start.

Also will need to make new headliner for the underside of the roof inside.

Last picture is the original roof.

Got rid of teak trim at the front of the door opening. 6 oz glass cloth and epoxy over the teak before the paint.

The only teak left on Sandpiper is the caprail around the whole boat. that's getting painted soon.

She looks great. The extra length to overhangs give the boat a nice touch. Great work.

Thanks, last roof done!

The overhang on the front really cuts down on the sun coming in.

Thanks Dave,

You didn't comment on me getting rid of the varnished teak at the front of the PH doors.

You're not getting soft on teak are you?

No, I am still an advocate on painting teak. We love our white teak and the lack of work it provides. When we put our hardtop on the flybridge we also had the front extend about 6Ē forward over the negative angle front enclosure. In light rain it keeps the rain off the front panels and we can still leave some panels open. Also it does provide more shade in the flybridge. Yours looks good.

I wooded and epoxied the cap rail around the whole boat with the intention of painting it. The teak caprail looked so good with the thick epoxy on it that I lost my mind and varnished the epoxy coating. 11 years later, the caprail needs varnish and I don't want to do it. Will have to take it down to the epoxy. Next year?

One moment or weakness and many many hours of retribution...
