Larry I get my cowls from Andy Brown & I custom fit it to a piece of wood for the 101. I'll be working on a cowl mold over the winter,if it's broken send it back & I'll fix it. Just a Note: You may need extra cowl tie downs. I have used the Zippkits cowl on my 45 rigger,I just trim the back end some & it looks cool. Ray Bowden got one on his 45 rigger & looks cool when painted. Andy Brown Email: andybrownprops@gmail.com Phone: (386)330-2420. Donna will help you on the phone. I've done a lot of orders by email. They take PayPal,nice people never had a problem buying from them for the last several years.

Sure they are wet laid,  not vacuum bagged, and require a little work but for $24 it sure looks good on my boat.

Yeah, Joel, I like the way you adapt that AB cowl with the wood in the nose area.

 

Looks way cool!

 

Thanks-

Hi Larry- AB's cowls are available in CF, to the best of my knowledge, but they are

 

substantially more $$$. You'd have to contact CMD, Inc. for more info.

 

Give Donna a call at (386) 330-2420 for specifics, or contact Andy here.

 

Hope it all works out for you.

 

Thanks-

 

Tim

The 45 zip cowl isnt long enough. I would have add wood to the bottom of it to extend the nose far enough. I would much rather have a larger cowl around the motor area anyway like my JRX has... I guess I was just comparing it to the Andy Brown cowl which is significantly stiffer and laid up better. Thanks for the info fellas.

Larry,

 

I have a JAE 45 Cowl mold. See attached picture.

 

I would need about 4-5 weeks to get a cowl done.

 

Regards,

 

Bert
