Look in the West Systems  book. If you don't have a copy, I think that it's downloadable on the web somewhere.

About three years ago, I came across a graph showing stress comparisons of aluminum, fiberglass and wood composite in boat hulls over a period of time. If anyone has any idea where I might find a copy, I would really appreciate it.

  So far a couple years on it no issues. I chose polycarbonate for impact resistance- stuff I don't like to think about- like someones body hitting it in event of a crash or high speed grounding or on a lighter note, from sinkers swinging from onboard and those possibly thrown from the headboats.

I took my grandson out fishing several years back, so it was my youngest son, my grandson (oldest boys son (dad deployed in Iraq), and myself.  We were hauling ass down river, at  dusk, sun in our eyes, I hit a sand bar at about thirty miles an hour. Good thing I had a pump as opposed to a prop, ended up 60 yards out on this huge sand bar. I was freaking out, my daughter in law doesn't like me to begin with, (I'm a little back woods) and to have this wreck with her son, my step grand son, was not a real good thing... We were all ok, even after banging across the sand bar. We were high centered out in the middle of no where, up a creek with no paddle?Huh . About an hour later, A couple of guys came by in a little jet boat with small block Chevy. I asked if they could give is a pull, hell yes! Hooked my anchor line to their tow line, myself and my son figured we would push to help get the process starte. As soon as that little jet boat hit the end of the slack line, and the stretch in the line came out, my boat instantly became air borne! The son and I both realized that pushing was not  needed and both dived into the boat just as it took off like a sling shot. Bouncing across the sand bar laying in the bottom of the boat, not knowing what was happening, banging and bouncing until we hit the water. My grandson was screaming about how cool it was, and yet Ben (son) and saw nothing until we were back in deep water since we were laying in the bottom of the boat! Long story short, no real damage other than to my ego... Grand son didn't rat us/me out, and he went fishing every chance after that...

I think it has to do with motivation to get fishing/boating.
Also a bigger project you know will take longer so you work hard at getting it done.
I know that is what happens with me on big projects vs. small ones.
It will be neat to see your finished project and how the heater looks.

Interesting juxtaposition.


Lexan with screws







and those awful black rubber gaskets




I have had both on my LadyC for over 20 years. The auto glass with black gasket will be re-used on the BW. The lexan goes to the dump.

Ken,
 The hatch itself has a solid wood edging on all sides and the foredeck rain gutter provides solid face grain to screw into, so no, no edge screw problems.

Do you have any issues with the screws holding in the edges of the plywood?  I am going through the same thought process as cgrfish.

cgrfish,
 Piano hinge used here as you can not see Smiley. No It's not painted, just mounted edge to edge, which makes it disappear. We sit up there, did not want any scraped knees etc.

 What did you end up going with.
Lyle
