We enjoy our isenglass curtains keeping our cockpit (aka family room) dry during these days of day after day thunderstorms.  If you’re redesigning your cockpit canvas, be sure to read this post with ideas to consider from when we redid ours.

I’m thinking they had 11″ of snow in Chicago last night, liquid sunshine and shorts are just fine!

Stay safe & dry out there!   Comments?  Please share & let us know what you’re thinking!  Cheers!  Jan

    Been there done that. Had an unexpected 3 inch rain in Ft Lauderdale. Woke up with a full dinghy hanging on the Davits.
