"Papillon" - 40' Wauquiez - cockpit enclosure
The cockpit of this boat is very wide and long, and as the owner also wanted to use the enclosure as a bimini, a lot of thought went into the design of the bars. In the end, we used two bars, each split in the middle for ease of storage. The enclosure has eight windows, including one in the top section, and zip up sides and aft section, so that all sections can be rolled up or zipped out of the way to provide the bimini.

- 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!
