Our boat came with more canvas
then we know what to do with. The PO didn't like the color of the canvas
that was on the boat when he purchased it (Maroon) so he got a new set of everything in beige: dodger
, connecter, zip out eisenglass panels
, zip out screen panels
- he even bought a new main and genny b/c the old had the maroon sunbrella (both sails
, so they have a sunbrella edge). The old stuff is in great condition - hardly used at all. We have a full set of canvas on the boat - in beige, and a full maroon set at home (stuffed under all the beds with the old sails). I think we need to buy a second boat to store all the xtra canvas in. Most of the time we just leave the screens/eisenglass panels out. It is nice to have the option for a screened in cockpit
. For me, canvas enclosures rate right up there with velcro and fleece.
