Paint and sew your own boat canopy

It is not that difficult to template and sew a boat canopy yourself if you follow our instructions below. Remember to use canopy fabric of high quality for best durability, you want to be able to use the canopy for several years. We sew ourselves in Docril canopy fabric .

Things you will need are:

Here's how:

Step 1: Here the frames are set up in the position we want for the chapel.
We have used straps but it is possible to use eg packing tape.

Step 2: Here the first piece of construction site has been laid.
We start in the bow and work our way aft.

We also draw where the seam on the frame should be, small tuning lines and placement of fittings.

We tape again on the frame when the next piece of plastic is to be attached.

Step 3: Here, piece 2 is in place.
Now you draw in the same seam on the frame also in this piece and the back frame plus tuning lines.

Tape again on the back frame to be able to attach the last piece of plastic.

Step 4: The last piece of plastic is in place.
Mark the last seam on the back frame and placement of fittings.

Now you also mark the placement of zippers and windows etc.

Also note which side is the outside / inside so you do not have to think about it when you have downloaded all the templates.
