Highlander,

Thanks for posting...we have been looking for an attachment point for a privacy curtain just aft of the daggerboard truck to separate the kids area (bow) from the rear berth. Would you mind posting where you got them/ordering info?

Thanks!

Fair winds,

David

Couldn't get to see much oter than a blurry pic of what looked like a track but probably more to do with our internet speed as photobucket is always very slow.
We just used plastic covered wire for the window curtains but they are supported midway and work well.

Well i installed the drapes I have tried pleated them then with clothes pegs to see if they retain memory if not I will try ironing pleats into them to see if that helps them retain the cleat if not I may have to stitch pleats into the drape header :)
