We began working on cutting and seaming and reinforcing the edges of the Flex-o-glass to enclose the pilot house. It was freaking miserable. No fault of the materials mind you. It was a combination of poor planning, general irritability, and Waaaaaaaay too much wind to make doing this comfortable. Still, we persisted and got one of the panels in to figure out how to proceed.
We've used GorillaTape to rim and reinforce the edges of the Flexoglass and then punched snaps through the tape to be able to connect to screw snaps on the boat.
|Snaps set into the gorillatape.|
|See it? No? That's the Idea.|
So apart from being in a crappy mood, hating the wind, and not being well enough organized (which is, apparently, my hobby) we actually did get some decent things done. We now know how to do this, and will hopefully get lots more done tomorrow, and we learned that. . . .well. . . .the stuff will work.
Okay, we didn't actually know that going into this.
So dinner and a bottle of wine is in order.
