    Windless anchor for a 276 ssx

    Nice work on the windlass. I love mine, everytime I use mine I divide it into the cost, it is just about paid for, LOL. As far as I know, Vimeo so far has played all of mine, and I have some that are well over 6 minutes. I was using the free one for awhile, and opted to pay for the 1st level that you pay for, it gives you a few more options. Denny.

    Chaparral 220 SSi Windshield doesn't line up

    As I and others have stated, you need to back out the screws or bolts that hold the front portion of the windshield, (not the sides). Do not take them all of the way out. From inside of the boat, push forward on the tops of the windshield,and look at the bottoms to see if anything is bent or broken. Denny.

    Only if the angle of the lift is forward, straight up or back will have no effect. Forward will open the gap, by moving the top center part of the windshield towards the bow. Denny.

    Thanks, Denny.

    Talked with my canvas guy today, he said that is not normal to put any straps there, because it is the weakest part of the windshield, and not designed to take any stress. Denny.

    I believe the reason that you have a tight gap on the top, is because the upper parts of the windshield are still back. Denny.

    Does apoxy resin stick to carpet glue?

    Get rid of all the glue, or else the gel-coat will just bridge over the top of the glue. Gel-coat is very brittle and may possible crack over the glue areas. Denny.

    It is not so much the glue adhering to the gel-coat as it is the paint sticking to the glue. What are you painting, and how smooth does it have to be, and what kind of paint? If the glue is pretty firm, you can hit it with automotive grade 36 grit sand paper, and then go down from there. 36-80-150 to whatever grit that the paint will hide the scratches. Denny.

    You are right, sorry I missed that. I have been helping a guy doing canvas work for the last few years, and this is the first time that I have seen that. I will have to make a point to look for it from now on. Maybe that is charistic of boats with center walk thru windshields. Denny

    I'm not sure how much pressure it will put on the center of the windshield, aren't the bimini's hooked on the outer edges of the wind shield? Good guess, another option to look at. Denny.

    I would scrap it with a putty knife first and get as much off as you can, then find the solvent that will dissolve the glue, and wash it down with that to remove the rest of it. S.P. make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated. Denny.

    If where the door touches the starboard wind shield at the top is the same height and the gap is wider at the bottom, something or someone has pushed both windshields aft in that area. What has happened is the gap at the top is narrower then the gap at the bottom. You need to figure out a way to push both windshields forward at the top. I would look at where they both mount in the middle and see if something is bent. Take the bolts or screws loose and see if you can change the gap by wiggling it. Denny.

    There is a place near me that makes custom trailers, and they make these to fit your unit. Denny.
