Afton Marina & Yacht Club, Afton, Minn.
This project, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the full exterior canvas powerboat 27’ and up category of the 2008 MFA Awards, included a bimini top and a rear top with complete enclosures, creating a functional and stylish covering over the cockpit and rear seating area. The bimini top, rear top and enclosures are attached to the radar arch using Flex-a-rail. Afton Marina & Yacht Club fabricated a nontraditional horizontal rear frame so not to have any frame obstructions behind the rear seating area. The rear frame was designed to have no vertical supports and incorporated a “double crown” that matched the curvature of the radar arch.
