Actually that pass-through window was to keep the cook from having to enter the relm of the hoity-toity to serve food and drinks. For a more formal dinner there would be a properly dressed waiter to serve the chow to the table so the rest of the "help" stayed away from the sanctified area of the owner and guests. Pete

I agree with PETE 100% and would only add,anything foreward of the salon wall would not be worthy of the hoity-toity.While pics show two comley fems. at the "table/booth" ,that was only for the sales brochure.......Unless "THE LADY" was slumming alone that weekend and had an "eye" for one of the crew.

Both ladies are slumming OBW. Later on there will be a tete-a-tete in the lower forward cabin and maybe a run around the engine room. The cook and the deck hand will have a wonderful day. Pete

I am not so sure the ladies will be needing any help from the crew. The way they looking at each other I think they are making plans. At least in my world that is how I think it happened.

On the serious side ,the Mahogony cabin parts are comming along well . Remember, both sides of these parts get stain and varnish.The "cycle" time is doubled due to the wait time to turn them over and spray the other side. NO,I will not hang them by a wire and spray both sides !!!!! Why? Because the wire will leave a mark on the inside of the window frame where the wire gets bonded to the frame when sprayed. But then, you all knew that.
So, be patient.

Yeah, now that you mention it, looking at the picture again, the cook's eyes are not exactly focused on the serving tray, are they?

I always use heavy clear plastic from some kind of container or packaging. Cut to size,sand to fit snug,glue with canopy glue or anything that will dry clear.

You could use microscope slides or if you want something thinner then microscope cover slides. I don't know if they come any bigger than the standard microscope slide though. I have seen clear Lexan without waves. White Elmers glue dries clear and can be scraped off where needed.

Re: Windows, I've been using .060 and .040 clear plactic sheet sold by Midwest- No problems with clairity and it is easy to cut and shape. for glue, I use Pacer canopy glue - dries crystal clear and has great shock resistance- it is made for model airplane canopies.

Here's some 2mm (1/16 inch) glass if you can work with it.http://www.slumpys.com/SlumpysStore/...GH7VGH572.aspx


Just noticed that these folks have a $75 minimum order, so that makes it an expensive venture for an individual build or two.
