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.
