I feel really silly asking, but...  Can someone tell me what the thing, canvas or whatever the material may be, that fills the space between the rail and the deck usually in the aft of a trawler or aft cabin boat?  You can see it on the stern rail of my boat, pictured below.  I would like to replace it but don't know what to call what I am looking for.

Thanks, in advance, for any help offered.

Barry

Hi Barry,

It's usually called a wind dodger but there are other names too.  Almost any canvas shop can make them for you.

If you have not found a canvas shop yet try Fisher Canvas in Burlington call Jenn at 800-892-6688 or via e-mail at fishercanvas@mail.com

They should be able to help.

Thanks, Eric.  I actually have a canvas shop making me new canvas.  However, there are other materials the dodger, or vanity panel, or whatever it's called, can be made from.  I was just looking for options.

I believe they are called taffrail curtains, but a rose by any other name....

2. The flat upper part of the stern of a vessel, made of wood and often richly carved.

I'm learning lots of cool words.
Thanks!

Blues - here's the skinny on what you're asking about.  The material between the stainless steel aft safety rail and the deck, is (or was) called "kick plate" and was manufactured in the 80's for a lot of boat companies by Formica.  If you'll notice, there is Formica on BOTH sides.  Material was used on CC's in the 80's (or earlier) on models like the 350, 381, 460, and 500.  I've have called Formica and have not been able to locate an exact replacement material.  If you have a real problem, the solution may be to replace all the panels.  You can go to Home Despot and find Formica (like) material that will come very close to the Oyster color.  It's too thin to mount on it's own however.  So you'll need to buy some 1/4" backing material to glue it on.  Then paint the back sides any color you choose and use your old panels as patterns.  I've seen this done with great results.  Yes, there's some sweat equity involved, but the boat you own IS sweat equity.

Thanks, Banjoman.  I think I am going to have it all replaced with canvas.  It is not hard, but is a vinyl like material with metal bars running in pockets across the top and bottom.  I think canvas might be a good replacement.

Food for thought: Vinyl will expand and contract necisitating eventual replacment due to sagging. Canvus does not sag and is virtually impervous to UV over the long run. If having Canvus fabricated, specify nylon thread. The standard cotton thread used by canvus people is suseptible to UV and will degrade. They tend not to disclose this as nylon is harder to work with.

This said, Vinyl has Pluses too, there are trade-offs.
