Photobucket's IMG code paste looks like this:

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

I wanted to mount the Autopilot control on the coaming but did not want it sticking out so no one could sit there. I found some "Marine recess boxes in the $100.00 range, then I found this one for $10.50 Recessed Multiple Gang TV Box for Power and Low Voltage
I put a piece of 3/4 starboard in the bottom to hold the control ( a thinner piece would have worked but 3/4 is what I had).

It sits under a Bimini so it gets very direct sun, if it goes in four or five years another one is not too expensive

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

What to do with an old cutting board and some scrap wood? I made a portable work table that is already coming in very useful on board:

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

Sorry I meant it gets indirect sun. Also the white was not quite white enough to get a close match so I had sprayed the outside of the box with Krylon plastic paint. so UV should not be a problem

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

A couple of years ago to make the removal and re-bedding of my boats handrails easier. I enlarged the area under the cabin top to gain access to the mounting screws. This left some unsightly rectangular openings in the liner. This spring I finally got around to cover those spots up using some molding from the Home Depot:

That looks great, and definitely a creative solution that allows for future access.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
