The client wanted an improvement over a cover that let sun in around all the stanchion rail entrance points and that took three hours for one person to fit. He also wanted entrance points on both sides with the full cover in place and removable sections near the cockpit area. The goal was to build a cover ensuring no UV burning of varnish work, less fitting time, no wearing of the bright work by the rubbing cover and sufficient venting to stop sweating and condensation buildup. The project included nine pieces and more than 85 yards of fabric, 43 zips and 10 yards of felt-like carpet as rub strips.
