    Default Removable Deck Roof/Cover

    Hi, I have been thinking about adding a roof/cover over the rear deck on the boat. I would think a removable top would be nice for that warm sunny day that happens each year. Is there a decent product besides canvas that could be sourced locally?
    A hard top would be nice for low maintenance but it does block a lot of light.

    I should swing by there and check it out. I don't want canvas as it seems like it would crap out too soon. Was thinking about a more rubbery/tarp type fabric, think inflatable raft.

    Hey Guys, I知 actually in the middle of designing a retractable awning that is pretty heavy duty. I値l send some pics when I知 done. There are no support rods coming down to mess with fishing.

    Is that some kind of of break away shackle with the chain running through it on your anchor? Brian's right classic looking shop and boat color combo's look cool. Boats & Brew at your service.

    North River make it. It痴 set at a downward angle so when you release the anchor it just drops. You don稚 have to push it off
