Hi all. I hope I'm on the right topic site. I own a 381 Chris Craft Catalina
, 1989. The canvas
is in fair condition, but the problem is, the visibility from the helm
is terrible! While at the helm
I can see just the top of the windshield and then the canvas
starts. I had an estimate to have it reframed and with new canvas and eisenglass from the windshield up a few feet. I'm also considering a hardtop but not sure how that would change the appearance of the boat's lines. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else able to resolve this problem? There is a pic in my album portfolio with me at the helm, so you'll see what I mean.
Any suggestions are welcome!, please! I plan to cruise
up the intercoastal soon and want to have this done before the trip.
