Yep. Done one about 4/5 years ago. A bit of a fiddle to get it to look nice and tight. It was put on a 6m boat for an old boy who liked fishing.
From memory it came out about 1600 them

That sounds pretty good value Biffer. Was it collapsable and removable? I'd assume there would little rubber hooks on the tubes for the bungee around the bottom to hook on. The support strap could go to the centre console.
I'd be interested in something like that, though ideally coming slightly further back towards the centre console. Could be one to sort over next winter. You interested?

Yes could have a look at another one. The fittings for the hoops have come on a way since then.
It did fold down but in fairness didn't look good. We had it laced on to a flap that was attached to to tube round the front. It was really easy to remove and he used to put the two hoops against his aflame and put the hood in his seat pod.
Just before Xmas I did a full hood on a power boat. The hoops slot together for even easier storage

The Greeks have a taught canvas over two A frames, used to protect from the sun. A sleeker profile with thinner stretchier material, more of a bow dodger than the full cuddy design on the Delta. But theyre waterproof and windproof. They're pinned down similarly with rubber hooks on the tube and a bungee run round the bottom. can't find a uk maker though?

On here it appears a few are after them, surely someone who makes covers etc could make some selling these?

See the schematics from Sunrider:
Cover from console to bow

I will be doing this for camping at some point for my 7m Willard!
