Trimming the canopy to fit

Posted on December 14, 2011 at 5:04am 3 Comments

I need to trim my canopy to fit a Zodiac XLB. Does anyone have any advice that they can share in respect to the best tool to cut the canopy and how to approach the job.  Should I start trimming from the rear or front of the canopy and how do I determine my datum point on the canopy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Spar finished yet Ray? I dropped by Saturday to see if you wanted to go to the cross wind cafe.
