Fits early Catalina 22's built up until 1985, through hull 18,142. This is an improved design of the original optional equipment that includes one window on each side that is zippered to provide ventilation. When opened, fixed screens provide protection from insects.
The photo of the Pop Top Curtain above is installed on a 1987 Catalina 22 and doesn't have screens. This picture is for reference only.
The pop top curtain provides protection from the elements in any weather. Since the curtain covers the entire pop top, rain cannot enter from the top. Fabric extends down the companionway
with a zipper up the middle. Although possible, it is not necessary to insert the crib boards for the curtain to keep the weather out. It attaches to the doghouse using a series of snaps installed in the deck just above the windows. This series of snaps extends in a horizontal line around the entire doghouse forward of the mast. A zipper extends from the mast forward to the leading edge so the curtain can surround the mast. The entire horizontal portion of the doghouse is covered. Additional storage space is created surrounding the mast for use at night to free up berths for sleeping.
1) Caution: Don't open the pop top while sailing in anything but the lightest breeze. it is a huge hole in the deck and an obvious safety hazard in a knock down.

4) When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
