First they show up seperately on a bill. Then they sre grouped together on your credit card statement. Then they are made part of your networth. Then they are sold for $.10 on the dollar after your wife drags you through the coals in divorce court because she wanted the livingroom recarpeted but you spent it on some canvas that you will use once a year if you can figure out how to assemble it.

Best deal is to work directly with Leslie at Mills. Likely need the:
- Flyingtop w/o boot (the $700 should include the frame)
- High profile windshield
- port curtain
- starboard curtain
- drop or aft curtain n(not sure of the difference, ask Leslie)

The bridge cover is nice, mine is on Cetacea pg 44.

Think I have this right: top, front, back, side, side.

I got all new canvas for my 1981 Revenge V-22 last year from Mills. I ordered:

Flytop set with the boot. Included SS frame.
High profile windshield w/o boot.
Weather curtain set- port, starboard, and aft.

The flytop is your bimini. The weather curtain set and windshield zip to it, and are mostly made of eisenglass. The aft slants to the engine well and is great to cover the whole cockpit, while the drop curtain will just cover the helm area, as it drops straight down.

One modification I made is what the previous owner had done. The bimini (flytop) is not self supporting when it is stowed. It just sort of hangs at waist level in the cockpit. I bought some stainless tubing and hardware and propped it up so it arches over the cockpit. Much nicer. I consider the boot for the flytop mandatory, as that will protect it from the elements when trailering or on the water.

And when you get the set, it will be TIGHT! There is a certain order to putting it up, and that is the trick! Let me know if you need any more help- been there!

Thanks, Todd. (And the wife loves the boat, other guy). I ordered the fly top and boot for now, as that's probably all I'll need on the gulf coast. Leslie said that all the zippers are included in case I want to add the windshield and side curtains later.
