New Bow Canopy & pump.

Been looking for a bow canopy for my Honwave 3.5 AE for a while & stumbled across this sold by Excel. Initially struggled to get past the sales muppet who seemed completely disinterested as it wasn't for an Excel but eventually managed to purchase one online.
Many thanks to Dave Cowell at Northwest Ribs & Inflatables for fitting it along with pressure release valves for a reasonable price and a quality job.
Also bought a Sevylor 12V pump. Nice piece of kit for 40 and did a quick job.Click image for larger version

Hammock stand for the Mrs, she's been in it twice this year !!!

Cheers for the compliments on the canopy. For 80 looked like the dogs danglies and I'm more than pleased with it.

Just need to fit a removable set rod holders to one of the seats and we're ready to go.

Running out of boaty related projects which is a bit of a worry......

Nice looking canopy there paddlers.
I think honwave would sell a barrow load of them if they made / sold them as a proper accessory.
I've just purchased a Honwave T3.8.
It's previous owner has made a cracking spray hood for it.
Made one out of an old tarp for my trailered Honwave 3.5ae.
I also made one from an old tent groundsheet for my old Seago Eco 260 too.
They are a cracking accessory for any Sib.

You're obviously a bit handier than I am when it come to fabrication Kaman !!

I think Honwave are missing a trick as their flat bow cover looks a bit useless. A bit of extra protection from the wind/spray never goes amiss and the ease of attaching and removing this thing did appeal.
