It's an old picture Derek, Fenders are now clear of the water and the one hanging horizantally is no longer in place.

Great winters day cruise on The Broads

Beautiful day cruising down the Bure and Thurne. Calm enough to have the canopy "half" down - in December!!

Today I've had the first fitting of my tonneau cover......

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have designed the cover with a zip on "skirt" that covers the gunnels during the winter. I will leave the skirt off during summer months but still plan to use the tonneau, hopefully, this will help preserve the canopy.

We have put a zip in door for entry...

I will make a final posting of my cover when the front half is connected to the tonneau and it is all wintered up.

Not sure of the trade name, I'll see if I can find out, however, it is both waterproof and rot proof.
