    3288 Engine louvres-gctid512159

    My 3288 engine louvres have suffered quite badly and I spent quite a time working out how best to restore them. Eventually I settled on replacements made from stock aluminium tube and King Starboard. So if there is more damage they can quite easily be re-built. I have attached a few pics to show the general idea

    very nice - just curious what the dims are for the rectangular tubing, and how you finished the ends??

      The ali tube is 15mm square anodised. I thought this was sufficient protection for salt water but we shall see. You are right to pick up on the ends though - these were a bit of a headache! Obviously raw ali is exposed when you cut the tube at the required 45 degree angle. I thought about making plastic plugs but in the end I settled on a piece of anodised flat ali spanning each end (across all 4 tube ends) which I clear silconed on making sure the silicon covered all cut surfaces. So far no corrosion problems!
