    No problem. If you don't find them and need examples, I think I may have an extra set. I had a local canvas shop make me a set of new screens. I can send you the old ones for mock-up.

    I believe Oceanair makes a retrofit for older boats that would have both the screen, and black out shade. I think you can buy direct, or get them from West Marine as well as a few other vendors.

    Thanks all. Hopefully I will find the screens when I get back to the boat in 2 weeks

    I used the Velcro and made my own screens on my old 300 Sundancer. They worked out okay, but if I were starting out with the boat again or still owned it and planned on keeping it for a number of years I would explore the Oceanair option.
    My current boat has them and they are fantastic.

    I searched but couldn’t find the height of the lower dark stripe on the bow. I want to order new stripe but I am away from the boat for a while. Can anyone advise how wide the lower darker stripe is on the bow? Thanks!!

    That would be awesome. I would like to order the new stripe before we go back to the boat in Mid March. Thanks!!

    Just to be sure before I head down. You want the height (width) of the bottom strip down near the water line?

    I am looking for the thicker stripe on the bow above the rub rail. I underlined it in red on the photo I posted. Thanks!!!

    Ok, my waterline strips are 2". The black boot strip is 3". I am removing mine from the bow to the sliding windows. It makes the boat look cleaner (in my mind)

    So you are saying that the lower stripe on the bow just above the walkway that runs from the side windows to near the bow are 3 inches?

    On my 89 300 DA the lower stripe on the forward cabin is 1 3/4" wide, its the stripe you have circled.
