A couple of years ago we took off the window curtains for cleaning. The salon "grew" much bigger without them, so we never put them back up.

My first option was buying 80'x42' panels, turning them sideways and hanging that way. Then I went with exterior window covers...both in Canvas and Mesh. (1 set of each)

I will attach pictures later when I get home from work, unless Tom gets to it first.

You can see lots of pictures of both on our blog...

As promised...pix of the interior and exterior curtains. We too took the interior curtains down for some reason and realized how much bigger and open the salon felt. Now we just have the exterior shades.

I'm partial to mini blinds...but day/night shades (down for semitransparent/up for opaque) have a strong pull for the mater stateroom for those morning sleeping in just sounds too good.

Depending on the climate you live in , you might consider WARMSHADES or their equal in drapes to save either heat or air cond.

Window glass has zero insulation , at best it will keep the rain out.

Good Point FF. The Sunbrella exterior shades are UV blocking and reduce the interior temps ALOT. Those interior curtains I made were blackout/thermal curtains...helped some with heat retention in the winter....not alot, but some.

I have curtains that are original to the boat.

You could:

1) Buy longer curtains and cut and hem them.

2) Make custom curtains.

3) Pay someone to make curtains for you.
