Mario, I have 3 flip up wind screens from a cig if that will help. If not I had a windscreen made from a plastics fabricator, I can refer you if you are looking to go that route.

Yes, That is what was explained to me. They would "Dip" them in a rubber coating. Any color the coating would be about 3/16" thick on it.. Sounds good. Should have some samples this week..

Going to check into the straps too. getting a lot of feed back about them too.

Thanks everyone... This is like my own personal google. ASK and you shall recieve!!

Thanks, That would be awesome if you could refer me to him. I am still looking around. I need to run the boat and see the wind scenario. maybe about 10days from now it will get wet....

Send me that when you have time

Thanks

Mario

I got to learn how to add music to a video.. I looked a camera system to video while running too. I think that is so cool...

GLH... THAT IS THE COOLEST BOAT EVER!! I don't care what anyone builds... That boat is the coolest!! I was so siked when you had your thread going!! I was glad you got to use the logo and numbers too.. 14 is the best number.... AJ FOYT ( The best Indy ever) now Tony Stewart ( best Nascar Driver)
Gotta Love the 14

I wanted straps in the backseat but didn't want them flopping around back there when they weren't needed, what I did was used the pin cleats and mounts, the mounts are in the fiberglass base under the seat. That way there is only the mount wisible when they aren't being used, but they are vey easy to plug in when needed.
The cleats I used are like these:

And instead of straps I used 3/4" nylon line, and around the bottom part that would rub on the vinyl of the seat I put a tube of vinyl that matches the seat so they wouldn't rub through the vinyl when in use.

I know what you are both saying about the T handles but I wouldnt feel secure with a strap.

Thanks Again

Mario
Not a strap(although they work too) I mean the metal arc handles that are anchored on both ends to the elbow rest so each seat has two. But the best setup I've ever seen are these ones;

I don't really have a use for them anymore, so I could sell them. Shoot me a pm and we can work out the details.

I wouldn't think it would matter what boat it is. The guy might have had to leave the office for an urgent reason...
