Part I of the bow pulpit has arrived for fit testing. It is made from 316 stainless steel tubing (2 and 1.5 inch) and half-inch plate. Though just tack welded for now, it looks very nice and shiny.
In financial news this week, the chairman of the Federal Reserve lifted other metals, like gold and silver, to significant heights. I wish could do the same for the shiny stainless steel bow pulpit, and make it lift onto the deck. One person can pick it up, but being eight feet long overall, it is awkward to move around. And it is not exactly light. Perhaps I should have been a banker.
So... this weekend, I need to find an easy way to get this thing on deck without scratching it.
