Whale Watching Boat

24 foot Bombard, twin 100hp Yamaha, used for Whale Watching in Nova Scotia. Capable of carrying 12 passengers.

Have been having trouble with the canopy over the console. Welds are breaking apart. Any suggestions (besides getting rid of it and putting on an A-frame)

Come join us we GUARANTEE whale sightings.
Wesley's Whale Watch, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Cheers,
Jamie

Nope

It's a bendy design. It'll keep breaking.

JW is right the design is bad but your cheapist alternative is weld braceing but it will not be any good for long as people will swing from the bases and it isnt strong enough for the purpose.

the welds will keep cracking unless the problem is fixed. if you don't want to weld on more pipe you could try using stainless cable and a couple of turnbuckles to help it from racking.
