Company: Oyster Creek Canvas Company
Name: Landing Craft Sunshade
Location: Bellingham, Washington
A 16-by 10-foot sunshade that covers the deck space on a custom 32-foot Munson landing craft. The top is attached to the frame using stainless grommets and Spectra Line. The top complements the lines of the vessel and holds up to 50-mph winds. The top had to allow space for four pick points when the vessel is lifted out of the water. A big challenge in designing the framework was that it couldn’t be symmetrical because the loading doors were in different locations on either side.
