Grand Banks Weather Boards

Has anyone had experience re-tying the fabric weather panels on the Fly Bridge? I replaced mine this winter and am planning the reinstallation. Any tricks to threading the line from stanchion to grommets while trying to center the fabric?

Just did mine last week. Easier than it looks once you get started.
First tie / center the fabric with plastic zip ties to get it into position.
I used 3/16 nylon cord. Measure the length of the fabric and then multiply by 3 to get the correct amount of cord.

Here is a you tube video that will give you a good start.

Charles-Thank you again-does look simple. I was all over YOuTube but never used “Roof.” I had Quad Bypass 3 weeks ago-so it will be another few weeks before i get the nod for boating, I’m afraid. But at least I’ll be ready. Thanks again.
