Wink Awning Plans

I am looking for plans to be able to sew our own awning for our CAL 2-27. My wife and I are handy with a sewing machine and we would rather sew our own, than buy a manufactured one. The problem is after much searching on the good old WWW, we cannot find any plans or rough diagrams to extrapolate from. Does anyone have a website where you can find plans for awnings?

Cheers,

Dan

Dan, When you say awning, do you mean a Bimini or a dodger ?

A sun awning that you put up in port or at achorage. The ones I have seen hank onto the main halayard and go over the boom and provides shade for the cockpit and cabin.

There are a number of books available for do it your selfers who want to get involved in canvas projects. Sailrite sells one on their site called "The Complete Canvasworker's Guide" Second Edition by Jim Grant and it has a section on Awnings and enclosures that might provide what you are looking for. Hard for me to know for sure as all do it your selfers have different skills and needs when it come to plans.


Don Casey published another book , "Canvaswork and Sail Repair" that might also be useful.

We are about to get involved in making our own canvas awnings and covers as well this summer.

Good luck with your project.

John

I have 11x8' piece of Forest green sunbrella with eyes at each corner and mid span, drapes over the boom and then ties to the stanchions with green bungees, during the winter we use the full size, in the summer we fold it in half, for us, it's the perfect boom tent

To make the "Shadetree" awning all you need to do is get some go to a camping supply store and get some replacement carbon-fiber tent poles. Then take a rectangle of fabric and sew a few channels in it, figure out a way of attaching the tent poles to your stanchions and you're off to the races. Or maybe it might be better to wait until the race is finished to put it up ....
