Please describe the project specifications
Bimini, Dodger, Connector and Enclosure with Framework for the commissioning of a 2015 Catalina 445. The project utilized a combination of Strataglass for the enclosure and Makrolon Polycarbonate for the dodger, with Sunbrella fabric throughout.
What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?
Customers were commissioning a new Catalina 445 and needed a complete canvas outfit including frame work, bimini, dodger, connector, enclosure, strapless bimini struts and solar panel frames. The clients requested a design that complimented the contour of the boat and provided both functionality and visual appeal without appearing “boxy”.
What is unique or complex about the project?
We used 1.25” Stainless for the Bimini frame and attached to the rails to keep the deck as clean as possible.
What were the results of the project?
The customers are extremely pleased with overall design of the canvas. They have referred several new customers as a result because of our professionalism and high level of customer service.
