I need to layout a simple cockpit cover but want to prevent sagging by using catenary curves both lengthwise and crosswise. I was wondering if anyone had an easy layout method for this curve ?

Kevin, i saw your question regarding the curve. Interesting idea but i would need to understand the problem better to make any suggestions.

In case you did not notice my response * to you * from a seperate question i had posted please read below.

hello kevin, I am responding to your note (see below). There is much to tell you about Allstar Boat Canvas ( business for sale ). The bottom line is this is really a great chance to own and operate a very successful canvas shop with year round work. I can put together a solid plan for you with little or no money up front. This is a serious opportunity for someone who has the experience and desire to step right in and make some serious money. I can help you get comfortable with the business very easily and there is also a very good shop man if you choose to keep him. You have nothing to lose by calling me to at least hear all the details and then think about it. By the way, i also had a business (12 yrs) in the Atlantic City, NJ area so i understand wanting to move to a warm climate.

 please call me ASAP or just leave me a number to call you. 

thanks  keith  843.814.1443

Your add has peaked my interest.  I had my own canvas shop in Michigan for 8 years and operated a shop for a friends marina for two years.  I was wondering if you could get me more information about the buildings and your business. Such as primary type of work you're doing, whether it's mostly marina or trailerable business.  Is the work steady year round?  Seasonality was a large problem in Michigan. I guess the questions could go on forever. But, this is a start.

thanks, B. B.
