The Cabin Cover

The design and construction is done by Mike Fina at Island Nautical in St. Petersburg, FL.

Jib track is installed on top of the cabin coming.  On this track run batten cars with pins that can fix the cars at one spot (like the block for jib sheets on a sloop).  The ability to move the batten cars allows the cover to be telescoped forward.
