I have provided a lot of entertainment over the last couple of months dockside. The first canopy I installed was from Lowes. $130. It seemed sturdy enough. I sewed straps to the top with lines stretched along the dock
for extra support.
Rigged up sawhorses for a workbench for sewing and wood work
. 2 days later, storm in the night left the frame looking like the pile in a pick up sticks game
$99 dollars later from Home Depot. Same addition of straps. Added eyelets for drain holes. This one lasted almost 2 weeks with me removing the cover when storms approached. The eyelets seemed to work
I spent the day assisting a buddy in moving a boat
. Got a call. Not quite the mess as the first but frame damaged beyond repair.
Clear day predicted, I just finished erecting $44 canopy from Academy. Same basic setup. Added straps. No drains yet. Wind
is gusting to 20 now.
If this one doesn't last, I think I'll look for a bullseye pattern.
Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat
