roofs...

Hiya.
Have found some at IBS: roof . Select something from drop down, then search the page for SUN CANOPIES. Not sure how they would behave at speed though
Hope this helps.
Andy.

I seem to remember seeing the pic that JAHNO posted as part of an information package for a competitive rib event somewhere in the Middle East, if you find that site you may be able to get some info from there.

I knew I'd seen them before! Check out the NEWS section of RIBnet and towards the bottom is the info, including a contact e-mail for the event's organiser, they were a matched set of boats rigged for the event.

Jahno, there are quite a few companies here in Greece that tailor make such canopies for RIBs.

I have made one for my RIB. I have it on at all times and I can tell you that it behaves very well at high speeds too.

I can also easily attach a second bit and transform the RIB into a 'room' where you can actually sleep at night.
