Pop top curtain for the Catalina 25 Hull# 5802 and earlier does not include screens on the windows.
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.
The photo of the Pop Top Curtain above is installed on a 1985 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.
Since many early boats already had curtains installed in the past, your boat may already have male snaps installed in the deck. These snaps were not installed using a template. Each boat is different. Each curtain is supplied with both male snaps with screws (for the boat) and female snaps (for the curtain). All snaps are included loose and must be installed by the customer for the greatest installation versatility. You may install the female snaps in the cover to match the position of the male snaps in your boat as desired. A small tool used to set the snaps in the fabric is available at a small additional cost.

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!
