Retractable screening for R29CB?

Postby Hydraulicjump on Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:15 am

Summer is looming and we are thinking about a better approach to screening the lift up window behind the rear cabin seat in our R29CB. The recent posts on the R27 inspired this. Has anyone put something in that is retractable? We are just using Velcro now. Pictures and manufacturer advice welcome.

Thanks

Ditto that request! I was thinking about getting a magnet screen for the door and something for the rear window. Any pics or helpful hints would be recommended.

Sitting on the boat right now. I clearly had not thought this through. The two gas struts are in the way of any retractable screen. And for the door, the notch on the upper port side makes it difficult as well.

I think this idea is dead and R29 owners just have to live with velcro or magnets for screening the rear door and window. Not such a big deal, just not very elegant.

Had my mother-in-law use the velcro door cover that came with the boat to customize one of these. Works great and keeps the bugs out!
