Does anyone have experience of fitting blinds to a catamaran with irregular windows? The OceanAir blinds are extortionate - looking for a more affordable alternative that I can fit/trim to fit myself.

Many thanks!

John

Have you looked at Zarcor Peek a Boo blinds? http://www.zarcor.com/

they cost about USD $0.25/square inch of window area, or perhaps a bit less. I like the idea. Not cheap, but sensible.

in the uk try wilkinson`s and buy oversized. use a cup hook to secure bottom of venetian blinds if base falls away from vertical.

ikea is good too.
