I have been neglecting my blog again. Much has happened since my last posts. However rather than putting all the updates in one post I am going to post a number of posts.
The covers of Sundance are original and in only a fair condition so it made sense to take the opportunity replace the covers. The first section to be fitted was the
window covers. I wanted some mesh covers to cover the windows, as this will not only give us privacy but it will also help to keep the cabins slightly warmer in the winter but cooler in the summer. We had a choice of either white of black mesh. We decided on the back mesh as the new covers over the helm, stern cockpit and the dodgers are going to be black.
The radar arch at this time had been removed and a small cover was made to cover the helm section while the cover over the helm section was being made. It was necessary to make a new stainless steel frame over the helm to work too.
It dident take long to remove the old Radar Arch with partly with a grinder and partly unbolting sections.
With the Radar Arch removed, the new frame work was constructed for the new covers. It did seem really strange to see Sundance without the Radar Arch.
It was great to have the new covers fitted, it now feels as if we are getting some where now with the works. Just need the Bimini cock pit cover and the dodgers made up.
However it is getting late in the year and the cover maker needs good weather to undertake the works. So the covers are now on hold untill better weather.
