Safety mesh around flybridge?

There is an Albin 36 for sale in Stuart, FL that has an interesting mesh screening around the FB rail. The pic is about 22 photos deep on YW.

Can anyone here ID this product / fabric for me? I have a fellow that does canvas and fabric, but I like the see-through capability of this material

I snagged the picture but didn't know how to post it. Thanks!

mike

PS - any opinions on the painted bright work? I'm wavering between how clean it looks versus looking sterile....

I wonder if it's a type of sunscreen. I have some like that for my side and front windows. My FB canvas is Sunbrella. Not sure of the sunscreen brand. They go together well.



I think they'd look more see through on an open rail. There are varying densities to choose from.

What's the advantage of the screen? And if it so advantageous, why not along the lower deck? Sunscreen? Don't see any overhead coverage aft of the helm position on the flying bridge.

The advantage of the screen is to keep grandkids and anything they may have in their hands aboard ship versus a solid canvas that I can't see through to back into the dock.

I had it around the flybridge of a Camano 31 I owned, it is good stuff it had grommets every 8" or so and laced onto the SS rails. My current boat has lower helm window covers made of it it lets some light in while shading, it has snaps on the corners.

So, the boat's owner doesn't care about children on the lower deck?

All the children are on the fly-bridge having a great time in the fresh air

Wishful thinking.

Surely it's not the same when you consider boats with high bullwarks.

Showed this to a chap I know that dose canvas work and fits out caravans and campers. His opinion is the mesh is used as a wind blocker instead of canvas where one cant see through seem logical

I think our mesh front windshield cover (for high summer) is Textilene; comes in different densities.

Yeah, it looks like Textilene, or something similar.

Makes great window covers as well.

Greetings,
Mr. mp. "So, the boat's owner doesn't care about children on the lower deck?" Could be the owner has small animals as well as grandkids and the higher bulwarks on the lower deck, as mentioned, would somewhat provide a modicum of protection.

I agree with Mr. g. Any children we've ever had on board always gravitate to the wonderful, open air, shaded fly bridge rather than staying cooped up in the pilothouse.

Take a look at Rochford.com
I've purchased a lot of "canvas", mesh & supplies from them
Also check their Bargains seconds

I've used a lot of the white 10 oz mesh for windshield / window sun screens

( tried to post links but lost my post due to a poor Inet connection - let me know if you need more info)

You can purchase 4 X 4 inch samples from Sailrite for a dollar apiece to be sure you know what the fabrics look like. I ordered eight different samples for a future project an one was exactly what I had in mind.
