Inside wouldn't work on my boat. I have sliding windows in the salon that you couldn't get to easily if there were screens in the way. Plus, I have aluminum mini-blinds on the inside of each window. Having the screen on the inside would interfere with the operation of the blinds.

Please excuse the drift, I`ve seen pics of boats with them, you have them, can you answer the obvious? Do they rattle?

Hi OMC, can you see in from the outside at night with interior lights on?

Hi Mike,

To having the batyline screens inside is not the right way to do for the reasons it does not look nice inside, does not cut the temperature, not that convenient and not "clean" against the bugs. All of mine are outside.


By the way I have as well snap-type sunbrella window covers on the outside of my windows I use when away, they came with the boat when i bought her. When I am aboard I remove the sunbrella window covers then I use the same snaps ( I mean the part of the snaps what is fixed on the boat) for the "summer screens".

Hi A330NRT,

Good question. At night with interior lights on, it is some less blackout from the outside at less than 2 meters (6.5 feet) from the windows. More than 6/7 feet away, it's really fine (at least with the quality of Batyline fabric I have aboard).

Some pictures for those who have asked how the screens are installed aboard.
The screen seems to be slightly curved. They are not, it is simply a distortive effect of the pictures due to the camera of my cellphone.

Sorry I forgot to say the upholstery reinforced the border of the screen with a strip of polyvinyl fabric to hold the snaps and to protect against any friction of batyline on the frame of the windows.

We have similar and love them. See avatar. You can see out through them surprisingly well, though when under way we remove the pilot house screens.

Everyone seems to be doing this it seems, and I will as well. Phifertex is easily sewn on home machines and available through Sailrite in lots of colors.....

Double-snap offers more convenient options, both screen / canvas can be held.

We have wooden blinds on our boat and they are attached to the wall at the bottom so they don't rattle. They can be opened or closed (slats slanted), but not raised without disconnecting them at the bottom.

Also, love the recently added post about the double snaps. I wonder how hard it would be to replace regular snaps?

Hi

In Antibes (rather expensive place), my upholstery charged me 100 euros to replacing 97 single snaps with new double-snaps within 1 day. Not bad at all.

Greetings,
Along similar lines...I intend to put screens/covers on our boat BUT is it best to attach the male snaps to the cabin side just outside the external window frame on the cabin sides or on the window frame (teak) itself? I'm leaning towards a frame mount as the snaps will be less noticeable when the covering is off. Any advantages either way? Thanks.

Bonjour RT Firefly

Window frames of Lutin are in teak as well.

Allow me to advice you to attach the male snaps outside the external window frame on the cabin sides instead of on the window frame itself :

1) This way would be much "bugs proof".

2) Teak is too much soft hardwood (medium density) to attach the male snaps which may be ripped off if someone would pull too hard on the screen / cover. I asked my upholstery to attach all male snaps outside of the frames but this was not possible on the front central window of the salon for the reason it is tilting window. The result of this was one male snap ripped off when my daughter pulled out the cover some months ago. (Last picture). My crew man fixed the issue with wood pulp, sanded and painted the whole frame, 3 working hours !

3) The screen / cover will protect paint or varnish of your teak frames from UV light aggression.

4) As a precaution, I don't like holes drilled in my window frames.

I asked as well the upholstery to reinforcing the border of each screen with a strip of soft polyvinyl fabric to more firmly hold the female snaps (now all double-snaps here) and to protect the screens from friction on the frame of the windows (picture attached).


I hope this would help you.

RT - we did cabin sides. This way if you ever remove the snap, you can fill with epoxy. Filling in the teak may be more difficult. Plus, if your windows were inclined to leak (not that yours are).....having the entire window covered will help lower that risk.

With a bit of effort before the covers are made they can fit outside , to stop the heat , or inside for privacy.

I have these. They work well
Use mild soap to clean. Harsh cleaners will remove dye and yellow the screens.
