Pete7s new fuel saving device got off to a bad start when Mary Poppins pointed out that not even a brolly that size could levitate a Pac22.

Jimbo said "I really like it" as he slowly melted in the 80f temperatures of the festival in an open rib, whilst we dined on cold salads from the fridge and freshly brewed tea on one of those now dangerous camping stoves

There is a nicely built new Humber ocean with a T top that often ties up at Mt Battern in Plymouth. Its new this year having been put together and operated as a dive boat by deep Blue
http://www.deepbluediving.org/charters.htm
When I talked to Rich he had made / designed (not sure which) the T top himself.
I fancy the sort of protection a T top provides and a decent tow post on my next boat but lottery excepting that wont be soon.

Quite a few fishing boats use side curtains (caveat: they're usually cabin type boats...) Usually made from clear(ish) vinyl plastic, and rolled up when not in use.

If you're doing a T-top and adding curtains, I'd look at a one piece wrap-around (front and sides), roll the sides up from the back, and fold the thing up under (or over) the T-top and secure it there.
