I will post pictures in the future but i am in the process of converting one piece sundeck to three

Removed vinyl as we will be using original (thanks Babes Seat Soap and 303)

Debated if I needed three band-aids or just to suck blood periodically resulting from removing a few hundred staples
Removed foam

Received latches from Midwest Mastercraft

Currently making extra supports and stainless steel hinges

Will cut deck tonight or tomorrow and make cutout for handles

I'd love to do that to mine, maybe I'll be inspired/motivated by you. Be sure to post pictures of the operation (and detailed instructions and your phone number ) when you get finished.

Hey Buoyhead,

Where do you ski in NYC? I fly into JFK a lot a have seen someone skiing a narrow stretch of water about 1 mile or so, I think S/SW of the airport. Looks like there are some boatdocks on the west end.

The colder it gets, the more important this rule must be followed.

Unfortunately I work in the city but fortunately dont have to ski there! I knew of some guys from Brooklyn back in the day but not sure if they're still skiing. My site is 13 miles east of JFK and 2 miles NNW of Jones Beach Tower. Do you fly for a living?

I have a few estimates ALL OVER the place... One more to go tomorrow and I can decide where to get it made...

Any pics of the new nose stop?

Bought the balance of my winterization supplies...
VR-1 20w50 Synth
Napa 41060 - upgrade version of 1069
Napa 3003 - in line fuel filter - goes before pump
Sea Foam - stabilize fuel

hope to hold off on winterization - but work alas is getting in the way and the weather slipping away..

Mike,
Do you think Sea Foam works better as fuel stabilizer that Stabil?

Read somewhere that Seafoam lasts longer than Stabil - I still use Stabil Ethanol Treatment at fill ups - but always dump a appropriate amount of seafoam for layup.

Seafoam itself is a fuel stabilizer...
