PETE has lost it . A Comet is a Mercury.

QUOTE=norgale]Hey that's a great idea. Why didn't I think of that? I'm getting all worn out chasing those little honeys.
A Studdy Lark? Man that is going back aways. We had a Comet wagon in 1960. Moved everything from Mass. to Florida with it and a Uhaul trailer. Unfortunatly I'm still here.
Ya still have the old model? How about picture of it and the box ect? Sounds interesting. I assume the boat was an original kit? Mine came from one of the last kits made by Sterling back in 1996. First RC boat I ever built and still have it of course. It's all apart right now to be refitted and repainted. Pete[/QUOTE]

PETE,PETE,PETE Didn't you wonder lately if I had a frontal lobotomy.

The next time the snow exceeds 6" BE HERE
OBW
PS GOTTA GET BACK TO THAT BOAT

You make things very attractive Old Bilge Bucket. How could anyone turn down a Porterhouse steak AND the choice of snow shovels? Ha!
I didn't 'move' to Alligator Alley in my Mercury and how did you know I had a Mercury ? I left the East coast,got on AA and this was as far as I could go because that's all the gas I had with .35 left in my pocket. Been here ever since.

Ahhhh yes your worshipful boatness,you do have my blessing. Maybe the curve or lack of it was why I had so much trouble getting my cabin to fit right. Now what's next? Pete

Because the horizontal supports will be too high on the sides. The windshield would hit and stop the cabin from sliding back to disengage for removal. In addition ,there is another project further foreward. Discussion on that project will be brought up at the appropriate time.
I do not wish to overload the grey matter. I'll feed it to you gently.

Small progress, but better than none.



Next step :The beveled ends must be fabricated first.Then it needs to be secured to the windshield.(inside)
