Pacific 22 Wheelhouse, pilothouse???

I'm currently looking at getting a wheelhouse for my Pac..
Local road closures meant i had to get the boat back in the water sooner than expected, plus the usual scottish weather is not helping things, snow, hail, rain etc. So its time to get me some shelter!!..
Not really bothered about new or used, just as long as its the pillar box style
Anyone out there got anything, or any ideas where i could try?.
If i cant find one, i may have to consider making something.
Ps i got a Gecko helmet, already..

There was a guy somewhere on the isle of wight who was making fibre glass shed specifically for pac22s, bolted to the deck using the threads for the lifting eyes.

Don't think i'll have his details any more...

Wheelhouse

Yep, saw that one at DD Pacifics, its nice for sure. However 2 grand is a bit steep!, thats before spending a fortune on fuel to go down south and get it. Would be a over a thousand miles round trip. My Ford ranger uses as much fuel as my Pac!!!..

You can presumably get it delivered for a few hundred via shiply?

I'd be surprised if you can build one much cheaper, by the time you make a mould, fit Windows etc... unless you know of a cheap tractor cab that happens to fit.
