Cockpit Enclosure for an A30

Here's a few pictures of the cockpit enclosure that we had built last summer (2007).

I don't have pictures taken specifically of the enclosure unfortunately, but rather just general shots of the boat that show how it looks.

The enclosure is comprised of :

  • 1 Dodger with opening windscreen
  • 1 piece full length bimini
  • Upper opening windscreen joining dodger to bimini.
  • 3 individual side panels on each side, any of which may be installed or left off independently
  • Single piece back panel that attaches outside the stern rail

There are screens and opening window panels on the sides and on the back panel.

The entire enclosure is supported by a single forward frame and a single aft frame. The aft frame can be completely removed from the boat or simply folded back and secured for sailing.

The mainsail can't be used if the bimini is up.

Cruising the Chesapeake: A Gunkholer's Guide cover Cruising the Chesapeake: A Gunkholer's Guide

My favorite Chesapeake Bay guidebook. While it mentions marinas, it concentrates on anchorages—the kind of places I prefer to spend my time. And in addition to listing shore facilities, it rates each location for Beauty/Interest and Protection. This is the guide you need to really cruise the Chesapeake Bay—a smorgasbord of small creeks and coves.
