    This is great! This is the stuff that the guys at Fisheries recommended and that I purchased. Sounds like I'll just bring the Plexus home for other uses.

    Thank you everyone!

    Previous owner of my boat took the panels down, dried them, wrapped them in individual flannel sheets and then rolled them up and put them in to a 5" PVC tube to protect them. They are probably 4 years old (I'm guessing) and look brand new. I like the pool noodle in the center idea, I may adopt that into the storage process as well.

    Flannel sheets seem like a good interim option. I'm in contact with Steven Hearn from Dina's Canvas (do a search on Facebook). They have a solution that seems ideal and looks really professional. I'm hoping the pricing is reasonable. Seems like a great system.

    thanks,
    Sandy

    That's what I do. Make sure you wash the with a non Detergent soap. Google it, I believe it is ivory baby soap, can check for sure this weekend it is on the boat.

    I purchased a 6pk of white sheets on Amazon for like $20. Laid them out and sewed up each side about 18" creating a pocket. Put 4 sheets together, sewed it down the middle and created a book of sheets with 18" pocket. I put 1 panel in, "turn the page" and layer another sheet and panel, repeat. The pocket keeps the panels from sliding out. Holds all 5 of my panels then I roll it around a tube to keep from creasing. The tube may get replaced with the the pool noodle idea after reading this thread but it has worked well so far.

    The non detergent soap is Ivory snow stage one newborn laundry detergent.
