Have decided to go ahead and use the Sunbrella binding that I already own.  I did fine going around curves with it once I got back out on the boat and took a good look at it.   I don't really think abrasion is going to be a big issue once I got thinking about it!

I watched your video (purchased) about installing windows in a dodger.  I loved your technique and the finished look on the inside is so impressive.  This is what I would like to do on our boat.  I am wondering how well it will work in a situation where the window takes up most of the area.  The fabric going around the window is between 4 or so inches on the tops and about 2 1/2" on the sides.   (Separating zippers down each side and lift the dot fasteners across the top)   Or is there another technique that you would recommend that would be better for this application?

I think you can follow those window techniques regardless of the width of the Sunbrella along the edges. But we do have some new content coming out soon on windows with screens utilizing some new unique techniques. I think we have about three weeks to publication.

Not yet but the video process is going on now. Please give us another few weeks and then watch for emails on a full enclosure project.
