Custom Canvas of Charleston Inc., North Charleston, S.C.
The owner of the boat involved in this project, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the full exterior canvas sailboat 27’ and up category of the 2008 MFA Awards, wanted a “room” added, which included a dodger frame and canvas, bimini, connector, enclosure, screens, sailcover, cockpit cushions, binnacle and winch covers. The enclosure had to go inside the frame on the sides where the panels had to snap on the inside of the gunnels. The spray panels had to fasten on the inside of the gunnel and switch to the outside after going around the winch so they could zip to the dodger. The back panels had to switch to the outside of the gunnel. The bimini needed sailing windows with inside covers, cutouts with zippers and flaps to go around the stays and rub patches for the boom.
