    No problem, just remove the windshield frame and flip it over, then extend the roof, some good used green fiberglass roof panels should do nicely!
    The bulkhead is a piece of cake, once you get done extending a couple of wires and cables, you can spray it camo, and it will look like a million beers.

    fiberglass roof panels on a aluminm boat excellent suggestion.

    spray it camo what so I can be like you?


    "she's a beaut" that runs 52knts w/ 175hp

    clark plan is to cut and the middle roof, then lower aft. of roof tilt forth of roof.

    i will then have a more desireable taller windshield (this vessel has limited visability)

    the bow will be split down middle spread it will look like a 80s Bayline crusier w/ wider hatch I can fit though.

    this plan maynot look right since the SC bow is very short. I'll fad some card board to get a general idea.

    plan b will be a opened bow for anchor box and large cooler either way I'm redsigning front. so any real usefull advice is appreciated.
