so I have been working on El Tortuga today
decided to get kayak mounts installed over the beds in the "master suite"
I made 4 mounts at work
I installed them into the roof bows...why I made 4 when I needed 8 for the straps I don't know
So I went to local hardware store and grabbed 4 threaded rings.
I drilled .391 holes
and installed 4 riv-nuts
and installed rings
Here are how the straps will work (1 kayak on each side)
Once it stops raining I will put kayaks up so I can install a padded rail on the ceiling.
Here they are in the "stowed" position w/o kayaks
I stopped at lowes last night on the way home to get some reflective bubble wrap and peel and seal.
I wandered by the return/damaged area to see if they had anything to use in the bus(they hadn't yet)...score!!
a set of custom length bi-fold doors,returned never used
they are cheap house quality but will work great for a temp door to bedroom and 2 hanging closet doors.
I unfolded one set and they where 3-1/2 in to narrow...no worries I cut a PC of 1x4 and using 1x4's on the back made a one PC door,and reused the folding hinges to make a normal opening door
That is my $8 door...couldn't buy the wood for that price
It fits our natural 1x4 theme perfect
...some paint and poly and it'll be done...oh and a door stop,and latch and handle of some sort
Maiden trip is next month for an ECORS race at The Devils Playground....lots to do before then
