Title: odd things
Post by: Mike on November 18, 2013, 01:06:39 PM
customer wanted to quiet him motor noise and had me make a sound shield they have been done with fiberglass but he wanted canvas sandwiching 3 layers of sound insulation totaling 1 1/2"  I had a single aluminum frame to hold it up attached with awning tract at the front and turnbuttons on the sides that hold it open also
my first time with this request

hs neighbor wanted to be able to camp out also but he didn't want a permanent top on the front he wanted something he could leave folded up under a seat till needed so we added a fipper to the front of his bimini so a canvas could zip to it and pull to the front and snap to the cover snaps around the bow it was tented up using his 2 support poles for his exsisting bow cover and a rear curtain zipped at the top also and snapped at the base of the window and down to the floor in the center held down with a sandbag at anchor the breeze would be front to back a zip open screens was at the front and rear on the door using blue phifertex screen

I so want to hitchhike down there and kick you in the ---uhmmm--- shins . At least you have some "mind" work. Be grateful you don't have my life.

You've done great jobs ,by the way. I'm just saying , it beats the mindless s**t I get paid for.
