Canvas Barn Marine Trimming Swan Reach, Vic., Australia canvasbarn.com
The owner wanted to replace his screen cover with something that would maintain the internal environment of the vessel at a relatively constant temperature year-round. He also wanted the cabin to feel light, with privacy. This custom three-piece insulated screen cover is easy to attach, remove and store while offering great insulation. This is achieved with a layering system of fabrics laminated with a bonding process. The outer skin is acrylic canvas, the central layer is a closed-cell foam insulating product, and the inner layer is a light-colored flock-backed acrylic canvas. Using the fiber-free closed-cell foam insulating material with an R rating of at least 2, while being unaffected by water, was a game changer for the owner. This project used materials and fittings not normally associated with marine trimming. Adapting them to this project gave the boat owner exactly the outcome he was seeking.
