Anyone know where I can get a good deal on a drop-down cruise curtain that attaches from hardtop to deck for my 2007 Discovery 246?

Your local boat canvas shop would be your best bet. They can make it any way you want, ie, with/without isinglass, screen, door, etc. I would hazard a guess at about +/-$300...

Agreed - I used a local guy for all the canvas on my 246. He was able to make a really clean frame and canvas design for a full canvas and full screen enclosure, and a mooring cover, w/o making it look factory clunky (no offense).

Sometimes the local guys can come up with a different way of looking at things than whats typical.

Thanks for the replies Jeff and Joey. I'll check with the local canvas folks. Will hope to find a cost under $400. :greedy_dollars:

Please post back with your results. I had a 289 with a factory camper enclosure, went all the way to the transom. We left the top in place all year, and then installed the sides and aft curtain for the cooler months. I miss that boat...

Too bad I never got to getting around to having one made as we always relied on the full camper canvas while we were at the marina and eventually never felt the need for it while cruising.
NOW, sad to say, we are reluctantly selling the boat (getting out of boating after 18 fun-filled years) - see my add under (beautiful) boats for sale!
BTW - I'd buy another Bayliner ..... just sayin' :)

I'm curious, how do you attach it to the deck? Install snaps?
