Seafarer Canvas, Norwalk, Conn.
This project, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the full exterior powerboats under 27 feet category of the 2009 MFA Awards, is a full enclosure on a 25-foot Chris Craft. The purpose of this project was to give the client a more contemporary look. While updating the look was a goal, the main purpose of the project was to extend the client’s boating season. This was accomplished by adding a camper back where there had previously been an aft curtain. The only complex part of the project dealt with creating an entirely new framework. The two 7/8-inch stainless steel frameworks had to be lined up perfectly in order to create a fully seamless enclosure.
