I’m in SW Florida Bimini top is a must, side curtains I don’t think so too hot... and if it’s raining you can’t see through the plastic anyways. I do have a lower helm with heat, AC and windshield wipers if needed. A cockpit cover is good to save seats, dash from the sun and most rain.
I’m a former New England boater and a Full enclosure was enjoyable

I did my own using a machine and great utube instructions from Sailrite...never sewn before in my life but had a great time doing it. See the album on my profile page. Also saved a boat load of cash. Had a friend make the hardtop.

I replaced my complete Enclosure and got estimates from 7K to 13K. They all were using the same material except the Tenara thread. Use that thread it last a long time. Smiley faces w/o screens were in the 3 to 6 hundred range a piece. The isinglass comes in different weights and that can change the cost some. Every time you add a zipper it's about 100 or more dollars. If you add screens that will add some to each also.
Good luck and get estimates if possible.

Ken,
I haven't done it yet. I just purchased and closed last week. I took the boat to a boatyard in Stuart to have the bottom painted.


The shop I will probably use is Boca Canvas. Really nice husband and wife team. Joe and Terry. 561-756-5483.

Ken,
I have a favor of you. The 2003 Mainship I bought from the original owner doesn't have the port side bench and table just opposite the lower helm. He installed a power recliner.

The raised platform is there, but no table. I'll buy a pedestal and have a table built. Would you mind sending me the measurements of your table? I could also use several pictures of the table and bench. Both from the sides as well as the lower where the table attaches to the floor.
PM me and I'll send my email. You could upload onto Google Docs and share the address. Thank you in advance.


BTW need a dock to tie up in Delray Beach? I may be able to arrange a short stay at my condo slip. Its currently empty.

So the PO took out the entire dinette table and bench? That's a pretty radical mod!

He bought the boat new and suspect he had them build up the platform and not install the table.

I bought the boat from a dealer that took it on trade, so not sure how it came to be.

I am not at boat. It is in Orange Beach and we are in Ohio. Pictures by Seventh Sojourn are exact. Hopefully he or someone on their boat can provide you the measurements.
Thanks
Ken

We also eliminated the smiley zippers on the aft panels and don't have a door. We left the door off to allow some ventilation, it's helped a lot.

What is the name of canvas company you used.
Thanks

Hi Ken,


We used Steve Scrimsher, https://www.schrimsher.com/


Hey did a great job, I would use him again given the opportunity. Please note that though my profile says Carrabelle, our boat currently lives in Stuart, Florida. We live near Carrabelle.


To my knowledge, there is no reliable marine canvas person in Carrabelle, St. Marks, Tallahassee or Apalachicola.



If you are in C'belle, you might ask at Dockside Marine Systems. They might know someone.


Hope that helps.
