Swim Platforms

I'm thinking about putting a swim platform on my CC corvett. I've seen a couple of ideas here on the forum and would like to see some more. and I think a Dodger or canopy set-up would be nice. I put the blind's in they look good.

The blinds, do look great! I think an open grid, all wood, type swim platform would look great. I have seen photo's of some real ones, that would fit that style of hull great. I will see if I can find any. CB

Hey Tim. I think they make the boat stand out just enough. I think you could make your own with a copy machine and the plastic you make for over head projection's at least i'm going to try to do.

Its just one sheet and you cut them to size. One sheet will do the 42 Corvett.

Great --- but I wonder what running those two big blocks will do to your battery life?

Maybe you should look into twin diesel sound for longer range?

BlueJacket Model Shipfitters in Searsport, Maine does freelance laser work. Just send them a full size drawing of what you want and they will quote you a price. One offs are more expensive, but well worth it, The burned bridge deck grating in 1/48th scale fro my destroyer and it came out fantastic.
Of course oif you can find soneone closer, all the better.
