    I'm aware I'm repeating myself, but you do terrific work and you saved a wreck of a boat and brought her back to life. Warms my heart!
    Those winch stands are epic. I missed the May posting of your nav station - which like everything else is top shelf.
    Cheers to you and Grace - GG is quite a gal.

    Your boat is so beautiful!

    Thank you so much for the hardware.

    For my next task, what is more important to put on: Boom Vang or a Cunningham?

    Which will make handling the boat easier?

    Thanks

    No worries. I'm glad I could find a home for the piece. A vang will probably give you more ability to shape your sail in more conditions.

    Can Holders

    These are really handy and pretty easy to make. A nice addition to any Commander or Ariel. They just pop on the combings and you can move them wherever you like - inboard or outboard. All you do is run a piece of 8/4 mahogany stock through a table saw with a dado blade set a little wider than your combings. (it might take a couple of passes) Cut the top piece with a hole saw and a scroll saw and the bottom piece with a table saw. Clean up the edges with a router, glue the three pieces together with epoxy, a few coats of varnish and voila - can holders that look like they are original equipment. A made one large enough to hold a wine bottle and also a removable cockpit table.

    Hatch Board Storage

    Here is one idea that solved several practical issues on my Commander: stairs to the interior; a seat for my new nav station; and storage for my hatch boards. I came up with a fairly simple plan that solves all of these issues. I made a box with a removable top to store my hatch boards. The box slides into guides screwed into the front face of the setees and doubles as the top step and a seat for me when I am at the nav station. The lower step drops into wooden brackets screwed into the setees and is easily removable. The box and lower step slide out so I can access the engine compartment. It works great and was pretty easy to make.

    The box removed for access to engine compartment behind stairs. Note storage for cup holders built into the nav station.
