Question Advice On Deck Project

A project Iíve been thinking about for several years is to remove the marine MDF on 3 sides that surrounds Havenís sundeck and replace it with Sunbrella. A friend said sheíd help complete the project with her Sailrite but was apprehensive about possible issues with ABYC deck safety. The existing boards that ďpenĒ that aft deck are heavy but arenít structurally vital to the vessel. Although I want to replace them with canvas, of course, I donít want to raise problems with safety issues. Is there someone on the forum who may be familiar with this issue?

There isnít any requirement about having side boards around the sundeck that I am aware of. Lots of boats have the side boards but a lot of boats do not. Personal preference. I would make the Sunbrella side curtains strong enough to contain dogs and kids though. You can use some twist lock fasteners on the corners maybe.
