Re: She's got a nice rack!

You must have been awfully confident to cut out those gunnel caps and the only plans you had were "in your head". Looks good though!!
I'm wondering, do you lose any structural hull integrity cutting that much out of the caps? I'm guessing a day in some rough seas will tell you that.

Look a little closer He did not cut the cap. Only cut out that non structural insert.

I say outstanding job!

Sweet mod

I suspect you may have just set a new standard, especially for guys who like their racks 'enhanced'

It was a good Idea to leave the section for bracing, as Starboard flexes quite a bit, but for future reference, you can get a sheet of Starboard or C Teak 54" x 96", C Teak is $147 a sheet for 1/2" material, and C Teak (Boat Board) is the same thing as Starboard.

You racks look good Although from the title I was expecting something else.

Re: She's got a nice rack!

I'm impressed with the quality and design for a dude who self-admittedly isn't
a mechanical kind of guy.......... it looks excellent for even expert work...

--I'd advise to do this though: go out and buy that section (that you cut)
as a replacement now, while it's readily available and easy to get while you can.

The next guy who buys your boat might not think too highly of the mod, and
you could loose a potential sale because of it.......... You'll have a "spare"

--Sherpa ................... just is case, doncha know....

The racks look and perform great! Les, i'm surprised you posted the pic of my Rabitech's in there.... I thought that was considered heresy.
