Denise, I could really learn to hate you!

That thing is freakin' gorgeous - you are a true crafts"person".

Very nice. I could use a good workshop table like that.

Well done!

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

Thank you everyone, yes it came out pretty nice, hard to believe it's going to be "trashed" with all kinds of woodworking projects upon it as time goes by.

This was "free" Laun boards and ply. it fits the top of the stove in my boat.
can't see them, the dovetail keyed corners.

Wow, Denise, your workmanship looks great! I guess you do a lot more than bend sheet metal!

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

Nothing like a shower...Engine water heat exchanger. I think Jeep makes one like this. That is where I got the idea. I would assume this would work better with a sealer engine cooling system. Mine is raw water (salt in my case) and has been in use with no issues for over 12 years. I'm not looking to have a hot shower, but just to temper the tank water. Be very careful, the water can start off scolding hot! I would suggest adding a mixing valve to add cold water and adding a more even temp. and longer run time.

I ran the hot water to a hand held sink type spray head I keep coiled up in the Port Lazarette. Can also be used to wash down the cockpit. Or two birds with one stone.


What this plan does not point out is a 2 1/2" to 3/4" reducer on both ends.


And that would be my rebuilt Graymarine Sea Scoot 91 engine in that pic. Did that myself. Love to keep the original if possible.

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

PVC winter tarp frame:
No screws, no metal hardware or sharp edges to rip covering, nothing but rope and PVC (boat friendly), easy to set up and easy to store and open inside space for working. Can be made taller or shorter for your needs.



With the pitched short roof snow was not an issue so no structural ridge beam is needed, as long as there is no roof load. You can also use a 90 deg. elbow at the to ridge to get more pitch, but you will then have to tie center rope off to mast to keep for side to side movement or add interior rope gussets. And if in doubt, add a rope from the 45 deg elbow to the other 45 deg elbow on each frame section.

Put another one of those on it and run engine coolant through it - your engine will love you for it.

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

The easiest solution would be to use the stanchions for mounting. They are vertical and already in place. I have done this in the past and it works well.
