Pedestal parts

Sahara put on some more parts to the pedestal  This is a tinted plexi glass cover that will house the new instruments, that will be picked up in Virginia after the boat has been moved.  Seems silly to spend an extra 100$ for shipping and duty, then ship the boat to within a 15 minute drive of the place they are being sent from.

Please feel free to contact me! I grew up on the waters of the Chesapeake sailing and fishing. I was paid to work, sail, race, and sometimes live on a 51' Hinkley (they didn't really need to pay me but they offered!). I am a high school science teacher who likes to learn by doing. Used to teach at "The Sound School" in New Haven Ct. Check it out, the most amazing on- the- water school there is. I have rebuilt smaller boats from scratch, but nothing on this scale. This is an adventure. All help is greatly appreciated.
