Sun canopy

We have a Piper 55 in France and are intending to have a sun canopy fitted over the rear deck. Any comments or advice about the pro's and cons would be appreciated.

Re: Sun canopy


I've had a word with one or two people who are already cruising over there - I'll get some info to you soon.

Re: Sun canopy

We had the same issue, our Piper 55 is in France. We approached Canvasman chris@canvasman.co.uk who visited a UK Piper 55 to take measurements. They then made the frame and covering for us to bring over here and fit. It works and looks great.

Re: Sun canopy

we are just having a 49M built and are thinking about a canopy as we are taking the boat to France. Could you possible post/send us photos of your canopy ?
