Re: DAYTRIPs Hardtop Adventure

I am guessing a couple hundred pounds. The foam is right at 110 lbs. about 3lbs/sf?

DAYTRIPs Hardtop Adventure

I am building a hard top with my neighbor for his 33 Contender and thought I would share the process with you here. The top will be made on a cambered mold with the bottom side to the mold face. The mold is 8' wide and 12' long. Made it with plywood arches for the 1.5" camber shape then 2x4 bents be...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Joel, have you ever looked at Aircell foam? We wound up buying 2 inch for that hardtop project. Heavier to get the same properties as divinycell. I will start a thread on that project. Need to come up and get glass and resign. What days are you open this week?

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

It was definitely sweaty out there. Scrambling to get the bag on. Never got a perfect seal but I am sure I had a couple psi on it

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

I could make you a mold from a hatch/gutter if you want Joel. That would be a fun project. I have never made a "production" type mold. The original is MDF. Not sure how many pulls are left before some work is required. I would love to do a 300 on the 25. I plan on a small console that allows pleanty...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

I do Joel. You need some? I modified the smaller one to incorpoate a turndown on the inside. I need to come up and get that foam and epoxy. Did you see the 258 mako I loaded photos of this morning? I am going to cut the cabin house off and make a open boat out of it, some day after the 17 is done.

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Dug the 17 Mako project back out this weekend and actually fliped the hull over to grind off the bottom paint and do some repairs. You can see the modifications to the cap and the overall layout.
