Doghouse

Postby helenrose » Mon August 10th, 2009, 12:45 pm

I would like to look into the feasability of putting a small doghouse onto my Eventide 24,i have a sprayhood fitted which is on its last legs and needs to be replaced so the doghouse idea came into my head, i have all the materials to hand but no plans.i could proberly work out myself how to make and fit one but a set of plans would make it a bit easier, i have been told that my Eventide is unusual in that she has no sidedecks.
thanks in advance,

chris,( E 1908.)

How about taking some hardboard down to the boat and some small nails and make a mockup. Then you can see the shape in real life.
I would think that 3/8th ply would do with 2x2 timber corners.
The back ones could bolt onto back of coach roof.
1/4 perspex would be fine for windows .
Could do loco style or something more modern?
Make it go far enough back to give some protection to cockpit.
