Award of Excellence | Lake Shore Boat Top Company Inc. | Detroit, Mich.
This project won a 2013 MFA Award of Excellence in the travel covers category. The project took a lot of skills to design. The two-piece travel cockpit cover zips and attaches onto a telephone booth enclosure. The front cover is supported by an adjustable tent pole and is snapped all the way around the boat. We installed a zipper flap on the front and on both sides of the telephone booth enclosure to attach this front cover. The rear cover attaches over the console to protect a compass and instruments, and zips into the front travel cockpit cover, and snaps around the boat. This cover is supported by the captain seat and has a zipper entrance on the port aft side. This design for this center console boat was made specifically for the customer to be able to go out and use his boat without having to remove the front cover.
The customer could not have been any happier with this design. His wife is also happy, as she is now able to open and close the cover with ease.
