    Exactly, table tilt wheel.

    I hope it's just the camera angle but it looks like the window is leaning just a bit to stbd. Please tell me all is straight, square and true (mostly true as none of those angles are straight or square in the first place). As usual your workmanship is awesome. Loving your progress.

    I think it's the camera as the mullions on the door appear to lean that way ever so slightly too.
    Harry'y plans have the "wing" windows leaning in slightly. As you move in line with them they appear more vertical. I set them at 1.5 in from vertical. The windshield itself leans back at 17.

    All this made lofting seem easy!

    I've no wish to diminish your joy, but getting the look of this windshield just-right seems like a thing that requires looking at it from farther away than the farthest corner of your workshop. How big of a deal would it be to drag her outside for a bit?

    Can't tell from this angle, but there is space between the back of the window frame and the cabin trim for water to drain out, right?

    The back edge of the window frame stops @ 1.5" in front of the trim, and its downhill all the way to the gap.

    Removing a doorframe, building a rolling cradle, and then getting a crew together.

    In other words the window frame looks great to me. I copied Harry's plan to the 1/8" and degree of angle. The 2 Complete Ramblers I've seen in person looked good, so I'll have to trust the plans.

    What's up with the asymmetric lapjoints on the two main windscreen frames, is that a Harry Bryan detail? The overall look is very salty, looking forward to seeing how you house the lites.

    No, that was me learning to use my new tennoning jig! Cut the wrong side, but the fit was so perfect I couldn't bare to remake the part especially with that long rolling bevel.
    After that I started putting pencil marks on the side to remove.

    I think the windshield (really a cowl) on my rascal was the hardest part of the build as well. Looks great!

    Researching now on how to bed the "glass". I ordered some 1/4" MR10 scratch resistant lexan.

    Great for bedding deck fixtures, too.

    Frame built. Started routing for the glazing. Using 1/4" MR-10 scratch resistant lexan.
    I for one am very happy with it. Adds a lot of character to the boat.

    Lexan cut, and making some corner braces for the windshield that'll double as hand holds.

    Looks great! I really like all the curves and spots where you eased corners and edges, very thoughtful. And thanks for sharing the detail photos along the way.

    Thanks. There's a lot more to do as the front windows will hinge out. Got all the hardware. Also need to run the cabling for the anchor and running light. Through the center post and lower right frame.

    Been busy with flying overtime and the new house lately, but got the windshield pretty much done except for final finish. Can't install until it's outside or it won't make it out the door.

    The MR10 lexan is pretty rigid. A lot lighter than glass too.
    The osage braces still need sanding and varnish too. Center post is primer only at this point.

    The Lexan edges get sanded?

    What's the latest plan for shade?

    Yes, they actually polish up nicely with a small porter cable belt sander with some fine grit paper.
    Bimini with side curtains along with a "flap" that'll attach to the top edge of the windshield. Might extend it over the aft seat.

    Wow. Looking great. Every time I take a peek at this thread I end up going back to the start and looking at the pictures from the start!
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.
