Bow spray hoods

Post by Johnny Honwave » 19 Nov 2016, 19:47

Hi
Maybe a daft question but would a f rib 360 or 375 spray hood fit my Honwave t38 I noticed they use the same or simlar edge strip around the tubes.or is the bow a totally different shape.?
They are great because they have the window.
Cheers for any feed back on this.

Johnny
It's a shame you don't live nearer to me as you're more than welcome to try mine :idea:
The boats do have the same rubbing streak and the bow and shape is similar, so with a wee bit of adjustment of the hoop and straps it may fit :Confused

If you fancy a great read and look at so photos :idea: another member on here H-boyd has an alternative canopy for his F-Rib which might suit you better as it folds flat and has more 'window space' in it.
It's not a F-Rib made canopy, so it'll be interesting what boat it's designed for or maybe it's a generic one :scratch

Here's the link to his topic :Link http://f-ribsandsibs.com/viewtopic.php? ... bow+canopy
Maybe a PM to him will get a response about any questions you have ;-) :idea:

The one that Paul is referring to is an excel (boat co) spray canopy.
You'll find them on their website.

You could also manufacture your own, as I did .
