We’ve been doing a lot of growing over here at Sailrite and one of the areas we’re expanding is projects for powerboats. So when we had the opportunity to re-do some canvaswork on a powerboat, we jumped at the chance. And, of course, we filmed some great how-to videos along the way to share with you. So, meet our project powerboat: a 29-foot, 2002 Maxum 2900 SCR.
The canvas on this boat had a few issues we wanted to be sure to address and correct with our next design. For example, the bimini was wrinkled, the aft curtain on the enclosure wasn’t keeping water out of the cockpit when it rained, and the clear vinyl on the enclosure panels had been scorched in a few places from contact with the metal support poles. We came up with great solutions to these common issues and we’ll be breaking them down step-by-step in our videos.
Here’s a full list of projects to look out for on the blog & in the Sailrite How-To Video Library in the coming months:
- How to Make a Replacement Powerboat Bimini
- How to Make Enclosure Side Curtains
- How to Bend & Install Flex-a-Rail Track
- How to Make an Enclosure Front Curtain
- How to Make an Enclosure Aft Curtain
- How to Make a Wheel Cover
- How to Make Boat Helm Cover
- Making Anti-Scorching Protectors for Clear Vinyl
- Making Zipper Closure Flaps
