But I will pursue building a decent framed canvas cover for the bow as pictured. With some tubular aluminium ribbing it can add some decent cover and it entirely removable which adds versatility. Keep the cockpit and add a bimini over the cockpit which again is removable and foldable when not required. I think that gives the best compromise.
Anyone have any experience with these canvas covers. My only worry is what would result from a green wave coming over the bow and landing on the canvas cover? Suppose you need good quality canvas and some decent framing...
Seawater weighs about 64lbs a cubic foot. (I don't know how you'd think about this in liters, 100L waves = 102kg?)
No matter how you measure, any serious volume over the bow is quite possibly going to blow the seams apart on that cover, regardless of the framing behind it.
What are you trying to accomplish?
