Cockpit enclosure - Jeanneau 37'
The latest in a succession of cockpit enclosures. This time, the customer already had a serviceable hood made by others, to which we made alterations to improve the fit. The enclosure is also designed to act as a bimini with fully zipped out side and aft sections. To use the bimini section alone the cover has been made higher, so that whoever is helming can stand upright under the bimini. There is also a window in the top section providing a good view from the steering position.

- Penryn, Cornwall, United Kingdom
- After two years at Falmouth Marine College, Paul, with a Diploma in Boat Technology, and an engineering qualification, joined a local sailmaker and very quickly developed a boat cover department within the business. After three years, he joined another local company and this time stayed fourteen years! In November 2004 we decided to go it alone and Ocean Covers was formed. Since this time, we have worked in local marinas and boatyards, on Ministry of Defence vessels in Port Pendennis Shipyard, and on every type of vessel from RIB to luxury motor yacht. Gill ? Well I have been bookkeeping and office managing for over twenty years, so this has proved very useful in the running of the business, keeping the paperwork in order, and making sure the bills are paid!
