    +1 That flair should be enough to direct the wind flow over your face. You might also consider what Cigarette used to do when they made a folding flap that can be flipped up on the rear mounted hinge. It stays folded down until you want a wind deflector. Here is a picture.

    Pete,

    I think the curl version will look pretty nice on the Sport.
    Enjoy your Holiday weekend

    Scippy,

    How is the project progressing?
    I would really like to see your floor pictures beyond those posted.
    Do you have any of the glass work before the floor sheeting was installed?

    Thank you!

    I have far too many boats, just ask my Wife.
    If you have something of great quality, and you take care of it, it will last forever.

    a learning curve!

    Just now I''ve read this whole thread (Ply or Coosa?) front to back and in a sentimental way I feel sad to call it a day!
    It's almost 6 years of a restoration aided by the wonderful help from so many here ......Senior & junior menbers offering
    great feedback & tutorage!....I knew nothing before I started out on this thread of restoring a 27' Magnum bare hull,
    but the one thing I was certain about & wanted to prove to myself was, "you don't have to pay others for everything
    for those things you can do yourself"......I hope this thread can be brought ttt for instances that would help someone.
    I learned from George carter's wonderful journey through every phase of the "Red TR" restoration and the cheaper
    alternatives to buying the expensive boating parts, but rather use your ingenuity to find a cheaper way to get it done.
    I'm 64 now & even though I was about to turn the corner on the Magnum I was still a few years away from splashing her.
    When something presents itself sooooo appealing to get on the ocean immediately!!...case in point "35' Cigarette "kevlar"
    Mistress"...............you just flow towards the least resistance and decide "to just go boating Now!!!" ..............Scippy

    Wow, I'm a bit saddened to read this, though as much as you have invested in time and money, I completely understand. Time for all of us is limited, boating seasons are short for all of us here in the northern regions.
    What is left on your hull to completion?
    Sadly yours is the second Magnum 27 not completed on Donzi.net........

    Hello Mario,.....Yes, it pains me becasuse the 27 sport is structurally re-built now (all new stringers, new bulk heads, new transom, lowered cock-pit sole, complete epoxy bond hull to deck, 2 new fuel tanks set in place, custom windscreen (countless hrs. on just this alone), the complete "hard to get" deck hardware obtained & re-chromed, 2010 ace aluminum trailer.....Yea, pretty hard to walk away.......what's left is to rig and at the rate I've slowed, can't see that completion before 2 more years....the 35' Mistress puts me on the ocean this up coming boating season.

    Hi Pete,
    You did the right thing for yourself. Whenever a project becomes more of a burden than enjoyable is the time to move on. I would love to see and hear more about the Cigarette you bought. Bill

    The Voyage......

    It's the process that's important.
    Think about what you've learned!
    I understand what it's like to get tired of a project.
    I can imagine your wife may have exerted a bit of pressure.
    I know mine has!

    Thinking if I were to ever revisit this thread and post another word other than "sold" it wouldn't seem likely.
    But, a lot has happened since I put the sport up for sale. ... The whole idea of selling left me to rethink what
    it would be like after I sold....You hear it all the time, "Now that it's gone, I wish I didn't sell her"....so whether
    it's remorse or I just can't let her go thoughts!.....I have another reason to add.....My daughter.
    If you wait long enough (sometimes) good things might happen. In the case of selling the Sport ...it might not
    be bad to keep her.........My oldest girl (Tara) showed a remarkable feel behind the helm of the Mistress.
    Just this summer she handled what the Jersey shore threw at her... a steady and pretty ruff 4 & 5-foot steady
    belting!..............She definitely wants in on hi performance boating......Maybe the Magnum was right not to sell.
