Our next project is to recreate the aluminum structure that held up the fiberglass hard top. This boat was capsized in a storm and destroyed the original structure. Being 10 years older now we decided to go with a modern styling. Cleaner lines and more side curvature. Here is the project
The fiberglass top was salvaged and repaired. The ring frame is then made to fit exactly where the original sat so the repaired holes can be reused.
At this point the ring frame is hung with the crane in position and the support is fabricated and tack welded together. This will end up with 10 rod holders across the back.
Entire frame is removed for welding and test fit in the hardtop again for good measure.
