General Discussion / Re: Hull and Headliner advice

DB I m with you.  I did two headliners (my first) at the same time and wll never do them again.  I definatly understimated the time to do it (it should have been double).  Customers were happy but I did some heavy drinking that week.  And Ventilate is the word when you are spraying that glue.  I had a respirator and didn't realize how bad it was until I removed it.

I also save everything until the job is complete.  Larger pieces go under the cutting table but anything still on the roll goes under the sewing table.

I know what you are talking about Mike.  It seems like I have accepted a few too many deposits, but I know that at some point it will be slow again.  Soooooo I just work when there's work and play when it slows down.  We do however close our doors and turn off the phone at least one day a week.

General Discussion / Re: Dread the install on canvas
« on: April 02, 2012, 06:54:04 AM »
Mike, I too dread installs and sometimes wake up too early and lay there going thru the install again and again.  I have a huge headliner to install and it has been sitting in the shop ready to go but I keep finding excuses to put it off.  It has been said so many times here that the extra time we spend on a pattern is time well spent.  Friday I was going to do a half pattern to save time but once at the boat I changed my mind and did a full one and I am glad I did because when I got back to the shop to work the pattern I saw that the two sides were not equal.  Sure ould have made for a stressful install.

I have seen many on the net.  Gonna build one using 2 starboard pieces hinged together.  Water end floating with PVC floats, attached to swim platform and carpeted.  We live aboard out on the tee and though she has only fallen off the dock once I want her to always have a way out of the water in case it happens again.

Great one.  My golden loves playing in the water.  Building one of those ramps is on my to do list.

Been there done that June.  Too bad all kedar tracks arn't straight. And I know what you mean about just doing the upholstery side.  I have noticed lately how my upholstery jobs get done alot quicker than covers and enclosures.

Hey Mike
Not sure bringing the boat down would save me any money.  Those Detroits can burn some fuel. 
We did not make the CMCFA Convention this time and that was the first one I missed since joining many years ago. I thought about taking the boat to Baltimore and renting out our extra staterooms to cover my fees but that didn't happen either.  Maybe you can visit the shop this year.

General Discussion / Re: The Price of Foam is on the Rise

I got a letter from my foam supplier last week saying their prices were going up 10% in April.

Just did a "simple bag" last week.  He didn't like the "simple" price but he paid it.  I too get a little leary when a project is described as simple.  I usually tell them it might be simple but it still takes time and time  and material equals a cost.
