Re: Windows in canvas?
We have a 12" window in the bimini, right above the helm. Almost never use it to trim, which is done more often from the side. It's very helpful to keep an eye on mast head wind direction, especially when docking. If I note the wind shifting underway and don't correct the helm, I'm still more likely to retrim from the side.
While we have a wind instrument in front of the helm, it's just habit to look up. My instrument was broken a couple of seasons back and I didn't really miss it. I did miss wind speed readout, so I ultimately replaced it.
