Trawler Canvas appreciation

It's a rarity here in the Southeast, but from time to time, I'll see what I'd call a complementary work in canvas art. *A friend of mine sent me a photo of some work he was doing on his boat, and this was in the background. *It looks more PNY than it does Florida, but I think it really complements the boat. * Tuggish, I'd say.

RE: Trawler Canvas appreciation

The roof is solid/permanent so just the canvas rolls up to make open.***

Our canvas rolls up so the stern and pilot house can be open during the summer and nice days during the winter.** During the 3 to 4 weeks of hot summer weather I take them off as when they are rolled up in the hot sun the sun tends to damage the plastic.* Our canvas is like 90% clear plastic to let in as much day light as possible.

You know, this post made me think of this boat that I saw on YW a while ago. The canvas job kind of caught my attention enough to save the pics! The canvas job may have cost more than the boat!

They must have some serious, serious aversion to sun.

It may belong to someone in the canvas business, or to a very enthusiastic amateur in things canvas.

RE: Trawler Canvas appreciation

The only 3 things I can imagine are either
A) owner is a canvas shop owner and went crazy on the canvas.

B) Owner or owner's spouse has a skin condition that requires them to not be exposed to the sun. In that event I'd feel bad for kind of poking fun at this boat!

C) it is owned by a breed of boating vampires that MUST avoid sun exposure, yet they love being on the water, so...what's a vampire to do?!

Seriously- what is that, about a $30k canvas job? I really do wish the tender had an enclosure though to make it match the mother ship better!


P.S. BTW, I LOVE the green canvas job posted at the start of this thread!!
