Custom Arima cabs
« on: July 17, 2021, 12:59:39 PM »
New cab mold coming soon from Off The Hook Boat Works. Here's a couple pics of the plug being built. They will be all fiberglass and shouldn't way to much, with 6'2'' head room. I will post some more pics and some specs later.

Looks great..... 

Two things I think would be nice in a build like this are slider opening side windows and prewired for pantographic wipers...

Not to be picky but I would prefer to see the sides sloped a bit inward so it looks more a boat instead of a house.

What year hull and what models are your tops designed to fit?

Looks like a great start.  Please post as you progress.
Agree with the thoughts of sliders, wipers, and slant in on the sides.  This is not to condemn your project I think you will do good work and build it how you want it for yourself.

Another must have for me would be very robust bolt through SS or Aluminum horizontal grab rails for that walk-around up the bow  & anchor.....

Roof mold done and now for the pilot house!

Coming along quickly!

You may want to offer the roof as a skip top--that could get you more revenue opportunities form the same mold. I don't think I'm alone in preferring an open air experience, even in the PNWet.

FWIW, to my aesthetic it would be appealing if the aft edges of the PH sides have a nice curve to them.

I'm assuming that the layup will be strong enough for mounting a radar dome, rocket launchers and grab handles.

Looking forward to watching the progress!

DARice, that's funny you say that, about the top....I was looking at it this morning thinking the same thing.. And yes, the top will be reinforced with coosa to stiffen it up for all the accessories.

Will this fit 17SR also?  Boy, this would help ward off the jealousy of seeing all those kingfishers screaming by all comfy and warm on early morning runs.  Thanks for developing and going for it! I'm guessing this pilot house will improve functionality/durability vs softtops?  Pilot house would also avoid need to shrink wrap over winter also? Or would need to find/make custom cover?

Will the pilot house walls be a once piece or will the 3 sides bolt together?
