Google "warm shades" these are insulated and insulation works summer and winter.

:-D ... Actually, we have a tool we bought from Sailrite that makes quick work of installing snaps on fabric. The other part of the snap will be screwed to the fiberglass/gelcoat. Easy - breezy!

Remember to use a goop under eacg screw , even 5200 would do, to keep the laminate from getting water inside.

RE: Boat/RV Furniture

And *I* am doing a sunshade for the bow :-)

Thanks Fred... For sure I'll use 3M 4000 or 4200. 5200 WAY too strong for this application. I've been told to ONLY use 5200 below the waterline, but I'm sure there are exceptions.
