Howdy All:   Will begin constructing new window enclosures for our 24' Albemarle which has a hard top.  I'm using Seamark fabric and O'Sea for the windows.  I will need to bind the edges - not sure whether to use Sunbrella or Stamoid.  Thinking Stamoid might be better as it is more abrasive resistant.  Also was woncering whether a 1" binding attachnent will work with 3/4'" binding.   Thanks as always for the great info!!

Either the Sunbrella or the Stamoid binding would be fine. You are correct that the Stamoid will be slightly more abrasion resistant. But the Sunbrella can be purchased to be an exact match to the outer side of the Seamark.
You should use a 3/4" binder with 3/4" binding. 3/4" will not work well in a 1" binder. Sorry.
Thanks, Matt
