Cedar and a cross linked Polyethylene. Cedar is finished with polyurethane. Cedar is adhered to the foam with an epoxy, preparations of the foam were made accordingly. Finished off with stainless hardware. The rack the cover sits on when rolled up is also cedar. Hope you enjoy this one. Lots of work, but fun!!

show me an end shot of the cover in the rolled up position, wanting to see how the boards interlock!
Looks like a great job, also where does one get the polyehlene, does it have good R-value?

A picture of the rolled up side is in the images. Just zoom. Polyethylene was purchased from a boat builder neighbor of mine. You really need to hunt for it. Cross linked closed cell. R value of the foam plus the bubble insulator sheet should be good. I have it at 104 and I cannot feel any heat on top of the foam. Not sure I would have one without the other.

Have your say...
