Sloop - Did you need to compound and polish the glass?

No - the glass was fine, just filthy. I had to scrape paint off some of them and wipe them with solvent to get all the crap off but after that, just normal glass cleaning.

They are heavily glazed with tempered glass. I haven't measured it but it looks like it's at least 3/8" thick.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Here is a one day sewing project...pup tent style ventilation tent for the forward hatch while at anchor.

Used some left over sunbrella from a recent "re-cushion the boat" project and found some blue ripstop nylon for the forward section. There is a screen, can't see in the pic, to keep the bugs out.

Cost about 30 bucks and time.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I got tired of looking at the seriously faded and scratched plastic veneered plywood of the cabin of my 1971 Yankee Dolphin, Muirin, and since i wasn't going to rebuild the whole thing, i figured I'd cover it up!

Painting wasn't going to happen- sanding the veneer would be a nightmare- and finding pictures to fit the odd shape of bulkhead was unrealistic either, so i got out the exacto knife, and started cutting- well, after LOTS of sketching out the design...

cost: cheap! the real cost was the time- the good thing about marquetry is you can do it in bits and pieces (pun intended). good rainy day(s) project. i mounted the marquetry on some scrap plywood, and trimmed it out with some scraps i had from redoing the kitchen at home. a few coats of spar varnish later, she's ready for hanging! Maybe $10 in materials, 15 hours of cutting and fitting? It's a sort of meditation.

will post pictures once i have enough posts...
