Idea for a new sun pad

davidbrooksdavidbrooks GermantownPosts: 420Member ✭✭✭
When i got the boat the sun pad was in really bad condition.  Cracked, split and just unusable.   I priced out getting a new one made and it was going to be ~$700 and with the summer i have had i just couldn't do it.  So I had an idea one morning.....I hate those ideas that wake you up at 4 am.  I went on Amazon and bought a $60 double padded hammock.  Removed the bar and ropes and added a few snaps so it would snap down to the original location.

    Nice! I have the same issue, snaps are there but never had the pad. I planned to make one over the winter similar to the original but I do like this idea.

    @raybo3. Yep.  Had a nice picnic blanket we used before.  Except the Admiral has ADD and kept forgetting it wasn't snapped down.  Light breeze blew it off the boat and it sank like a rock.

    I would love to see yoga in the front of my boat.

    Now thats a good idea, and its easy to store.  Laying on the front of the boat with a cold one...doesnt get much better.

    The upward facing dog is the best yogi move.and I'll seat and watch with a cold one.
    Far as a sun pad 5 yards sunbrella canvas,2" foam from Michaels that's my plan,
