Re: Steve's Boat

"Heres one I prepared earlier-corrigated cardboard- taped together pieces of paper".
All sounds a bit Blue Peterish except no sticky back plastic.
But on a more serious note where are the fuses? If those white tabs are the toggle switches how do you change the fuses? You are right though there is presious little matierial left to play with. Do you mount the ply first then fix the fuse board to it or is the ply a template.

Re: Steve's Boat

Looks like you do not have much spare room to play with.

As the saying goes measure twice and cut once.

But in this case i think it is more complicated as you say.
Glad its you doing it and not me.

Do you have a swear box ready

Very Blue peter but no fairy liquid bottle...as yet


The white toggles are all circuit breakers all though they can be switched in and out.

I'll hold it up first with sticky tape! Until I have the right level.
When I am sure the location is OK I'll screw the ply to the bulkhead, using the screw holes in the same locations that the fuseboard will use. There are also some things on the other side of the bulkhead that have to be avoided.So when the screw holes go in I can double check that its OK from the other side.

Then I'll cut out the inside as per the template cut-out.


When I unscrew the template from the bulkhead I should be left with a whole that the Fuseboard should fit straight in .

Whatdyousay Robbie??

Measure once cut twice?
Well its in there.
The ply template really worked well. I just screwed it to the boat, cut around the inside took the Ply off and pushed said Fuseboard in T'Hole.

The Dash complete with giant Ostrich egg, starting to hatch.

By the looks of it two new lamp holders. Actually things called Navpods.

Re: Steve's Boat

I went to post this and saw a sentence in my first post in this thread. "Where do you start", really it should say where does it end!. On the Cowes trip we discovered water seeping in past a transom, shield. So they will have to come out to be resealed.

Legs off. engines out Transom shields out.

Brass monkey season fast approaching or not.
