  I could never get windows to look like this ,
     I bet it's that PDQ  ... The hatch bubble is kinda trick
      Sumhow I don't recon it's roll glass ?
  Better be on my best behaviour on this wee tub then.

Wow is that pretty work, even if it is polycarbonate (which I'm quite sure it is).

Yeah that's nice work. Strange boat, wonder why the dual helms?

Umm , ? D' ya think he goes both ways....

Ah well, to each their own ...  But that thing really is kinda wierd. Doubt you could see much through the fwd curtain. And yes that bubble hatch is slick but appears to me one would still have to duck under the top frame?

Different. Love to see a pic of the whole boat?

I doubt it's PDQ, looks like this guy used a DVD for his corners. I would have gone for the thermal pane myself.

  Seems I get all these little blow boats to play on..
  Easy job on this one , Instructions were "If it's varnished , cover it"
    O yeah and have the covers lined to avoid chafe.
  As for the never ending array of padded bags for anything that goes in the     lazarette .. Of course everything had to be done quick-sharp as the boat was leaving.... Rather pedantic folks on this 1938 restored J boat too

::)

Ok, I'll bite...   What's a "DVD" and "thermal pane"? 

RAF, now that's a gorgeous sailing yacht.  I call most of them rag hangers, but that's a cut above.  You do her proud, now  :D

PDQ showed a how he makes his curvy corners with a vinyl record. These being tighter corners I think this guy has gone digital. And if you don't know what a double glazed, low-e, argon filled thermal pane window is I'm coming to visit.
