Reply to bljones - I also found FarmTek ventilated fabric in silver or white. I think it was suggested for protecting chicken coops. Looked like it would be much more reflective than black. Some looked like woven strands of mylar. Part of the savings I see is with cheaper fabric and a big part is doing it yourself, saving the canvas man fee. I could be happy with something held up with clips and bungies.

In Washington a full enclosure w/dodger would be 8 to 9 K plus 9.4% tax.

Glad to hear your clear windows are holding up, you must be doing something right. It is common to see that stuff yellowed and scratched. I have read that rolling it up without damage is tricky.

Ya get what ya pay for...... Strataglass is the good stuff. It is much clearer and lasts many years longer than the vinyl crap most factory installed dodgers come with. As the installer that did my full enclosure with Strataglass in an earlier post said - you can scratch that (original on my boat) stuff by walking by it

To some it's a "Forward Berth"..... to me on my last 3 boats it's a pure storage area. The first thing I do when I get a boat is take the forward berth cushion home and bury it in the cellar.

Re: cockpit enclosure

If you want to make a cockpit enclosure or tent yourself, I found a real keen priced site for buying the appropiate canvas: Esvo Campingshop in Holland.


Esvo has two main suppliers for cockpit canvas: Markilux and Ten Cate.
I think that Markilux / Sunbrella are the best canvas types for your cockpit.
P.S. they also have YouTube-movies how to sew or stitch your canvas.

Information from them:

Markilux is the guarantee for high quality boat canvas or synthetic boat fabric. Markilux is the classic boat canvas trademark on the European maritime market. The one-sided special poly-urethan coating guarantees an extremely high ‘water column’(=waterproof grade). Markilux boat canvas stands for the highest achievable technical characteristics and an exceptional shape retention(= a perfect fit).

Characteristics boat canvas. Markilux.
- absolutely waterproof. Incomparable waterproofness
- weatherresistant, mildew resistant, insectproof
- highest colour fastness. Optimal u.v.-protection
- AAA-shape retention and tensile strength
- Specially treated for dirt-, grease- and oil repellency.

This most sustainable boat canvas is available in a width of 140cm and in various colours.
P.S. If you need ordinary boat convas for covering purposes, we also recommend the boat canvas of Ten Cate. One of boat fabrics is Ten Cate All Season Touring (with different weights). Look further in our range or otherwise

ZOMBIE THREAD ALERT

The OP asked the Q 3 years ago. I guess he either has given up or got one.
