Re: Clozure shutters advice. (Peek a boo shutters)

Catalina (I assume others as well) used aluminum extrusions with slides. A P.O. got rid of them all, but I managed to find enough for the top of the windows. I used some excess Sunbrella around a small dowel slipped down the extrusion. To open them I roll them up and tie them with a bit of cord. When down a dowel in the bottom hem is pushed into the bottom clips.

Re: Clozure shutters advice. (Peek a boo shutters)

I put clear covering on my portlights, not the frosted kind, it’s like prisms and sometimes will show a rainbow. Only need the portlights obscured when we are in a Marina as out cruising they are always open, and this lets light in.
Cheap and easily removed if you don’t like it.

That's a different solution. Does it leave a sticky residue?

Using dowel is a good solution. Looks neat. Cheers
