Great job. Maybe you could use the car window tint on the inside of your new windows.

Try mechanically buffing them with 2000 grit sandpaper, 3M rubbing compound for light paint oxidation, or even tooth paste.

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

on my plexiglas I used the same thing motorcyclists use on wind screens. Made a great improvement. Comes in 3 levels of grit. I used #2 and #1, Results were more than satisfactory on 1966 plexiglass but kinda wish I had been able to get #3 the heaviest grit. It is a liquid like a rubbing compound but specially formulated for plexiglass. I think it is called Novus.

Yep. wet 2000 is the key. Rolite recommends a polisher speed of 1900 rpm for polishing.

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

thanks guys the issue with my ports is not the glass part but the flimsy plastic frames that are flimsy and have too many hole from the screws stabbed into them

so they leaked too much

the glass part is actually pretty darn good still as are the 3 lipped gaskets...

wel see what happens...first lets finish the major projects...still have to finish one bulkhead, paint cabin top and smooth cabin sides then vynil the v berth...and then

ELECTRICAL , install davits, solar panel...battery, then its off to find a dinghy! yikes

and then

the engine or motor or whatever! ajajajajaja

so much still to do

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

oh guys btw I finaly found my through hull depth sounder transducer as I finally have dry bilges...

anywhoo

I spliced the wires as they were cut and the cable is a simple 3 wire cable with a coax type plug for the display

the display is gone...but everything else is SIGNET

are displays intercheangeable these days...????

I would love to simply buy a new depthsounder and use the old transducer and save the new transducer as a spare...

or could I wire up for example a cheap fishfinder display to the current transducer?

thanks guys
