At the September 2013 Annapolis Seven Seas Cruising Association Gam one of the vendors was displaying a mock-up of what looks like a new idea in enclosure design and materials. Considering it is a different concept I thought it was worth noting. Canvas Creations in Annapolis has introduced a new hard top enclosure made of Starboard. The window panels are a firm acrylic, not a soft vinyl, held between edges of Stamoid. The panels slide on and off tracks. The forward panel flips up. A second track for shades or screens can be added. Handholds made of Starboard are also available.
I don’t have a personal interest in this design and I am not in the market for an enclosure since we had ours redone. Just thought that it was a different hard top enclosure idea to consider. What do you think?
