Hello
Looking for a plastic or canvas with big window drop down curtain to keep the weather blowing in when the need arises. Possibly attached to the twist lock fasteners used for the mooring cover on the cab opening. THANKS!

Your best bet is to have a local canvas working build it for you.

Another DIY is with SailRite materials. This can be done without sewing, using Shelter-Rite vinyl scrim reinforced fabric, and clear vinyl for the window. @ $18 a yard. (2-3 yards) Clear vinyl 30 gauge 68" x 29" for $27. You can assemble the back curtain, just using HL66 Vinyl glue-- no sewing or zippers. Close the center with common sense fasteners. The common sense fasteners, and the turn the tab will cost about $12 for 10. You can hand cutout with an exact knife--or get a cutting tool for $70. (cheaper one for $27 on amazon--not as good.) You will probably want to use the rivet set (so you want a punch, and set) These can coast as little as $15.. These are easy to build and give you some new skills. Total cost is going to be in the Less than $100 to $200 if you buy some professional grade tools... and be set up for more projects in the future.

Overlap the flap in the middle and 3 fasteners would suffice to keep it closed.

Common Sense Fasteners:
