I always used to think of solving problems using wood (my dad was a carpenter). Then when I went into the roofing business I discovered sheet metal, and a lot of the problems wood could not handle sheet metal could. Now in the plastics business I think I have found the most versatile material of all.
Cruising alone I often had the need to jot things down, course notes, weather, slip assignments going into a marina etc. How could this be done easily and unobtrusively?
My solution was a little bent piece of acrylic that would sit next to the console. So easy to do in plastic. Perhaps we at PlasticWorks can help you with solutions for your projects.
