2-bow canopy installation suggestion:
Aluminum support poles of 2-bow canopies may be attached directly to the grommets that are installed into splashguard on top of the boat tubes. Plastic cable ties can be run through the support pole holes and grommets in the splashguard or optional wing nut bolts can be used for quick disconnect.
Four straps can also be secured to grommets in a same manner. Properly adjusted tension of strap lines will hold the canopy vertically in place.
To fold canopy down, simply unlock straps in front or in rear and fold canopy down.
Canopy support poles can also be mounted on top of oars with provided oar clips.
If no attachment places are available at all, then D-rings need to be glued on top of tubes in order to provide attachment points.
Canopy can also be installed on Fishing FK396 Kayak. Pleas see example of installation here.
