All Weather Wheelhouse

Evening all,
I have a 8.4 mtr Coastline Rib that I intend to use is all (most) weather conditions to hop across the Solent.
I have in mind some sort of fabric wheelhouse, but it must look reasonably sleek. I've scoured the net but can't find anything. Any suggestions welcome.
Thanks in advance.
Roy

If the Coastline has an overhead console gantry then you could do anything....

Thats the type of look I'm after, but no overhead gantry fitted, not impossible though.

Roy, the wheelhouse cover and A frame on this Parker 900 Baltic was made and installed by

Dave Crawford Marine
Bridge Road
Lymington
SO41 9BZ


The console and 2 x 1 man jockey seats are aft and we later supplied to Dave Crawford a bench seat

Perhaps this is what you are looking for

All credit should go to Dave Crawford Marine. They did a great job.

The rib was originally supplied as a tender for a very large sailing boat. There were two H frames , the aft one can be seen on the attached photo.
When the rib was send back to our factory for a re-fit we made and installed the large storage box . The rib was later sold and the new owner had the H frames and storage box removed and a bench seat and canopy wheelhouse installed. The rib is now based in the Hamble .

Hi Andre, please don't go to any trouble, I think, I have a plan. I'm going to buy a T-Top and get it canvassed in. I've see something that looks promising.

OK no worries If I get a reply I will let you know.

Some 10 years ago we made something similar on a Parker 630 RIB for our then Swedish distributor . The client wanted protection when travelling from his house on an island to the mainland.

I guess something like that you could get made locally. You can use the photo as an example what you want
