Window Blinds

Sewing skills are non-existent in my family and I did not like any of the curtains I have seen, so that left purchasing blinds.

Since my 2006 26M has fake wood trim around the cabin windows the Oceanair Pleated Shades were a good fit. It was kind of expensive since there are eight shades to buy.

The blinds snap open or closed easily and provide good privacy and sun shade.

Since the aft most windows are an odd shape I installed those blinds upside down and installed the stern side snap lower than the other side.
