Dockside Shade

We were asked recently to solve an issue with a customers dock. The problem was the sun. It beat down on the boat even though the dock was covered. The boat was 6 years old and she had noticed that the upholstery was showing signs of sun damage. The conventional solve is to make fitted covers for the seating but the customer did not want to deal with removing and stowing them every time she took the boat out. Our solution was to simply shade the entire boat on the South and West sides of the slip.

The marine mesh fabric runs on aluminum rails attached to the dock and is hung with stainless steel roller clips. The curtains can easily be separated and gathered for securing and to allow the boat to come and go as desired. We took special care to assure the look of the project was pleasing to the eye.
