Awning improvement ideas from another old sailboat

Posted By on January 5, 2017


Although I just updated a few of the fittings on Encore‘s ShadeTree awning system, I’d prefer fewer bungee cords and fiberglass and vinyl wear points. After posting a comment to Eben Bruyns the new owner of Taleisin (Lin and Larry Pardey‘s boat), I noticed the D-ring fittings and cinch lines and figured I would archive the photo in order to replace ours when they fail … of course I’m also envious of the boom gallows.

Great older photo of Taleisin … what a beautifully built and well maintained 1983 wooden boat. If time and money were no object, she is a beautiful sailboat.
