To make this top more narrow, simply cut top tubes shorter on one or both sides, and re-drill new holes for pushpins. It is easy, 5 minutes DIY project. Just need hacksaw and electric drill. See Assembly Steps below for details.
PLEASE NOTE: Canopy comes with standard hardware for installation on fiberglass or aluminium boat. When installing on inflatable boat, some of these hardware can be discarded. Canopy support poles can be installed directly on oarlocks. To fit over pin of oarlock, holes on plastic mounting jaws need to be enlarged or drilled directly into aluminium.
Rowing oars can be placed on top of oarlocks and fastened with a rubber cord. If you need to use oars, just fold the canopy toward the bow, unscrew the pins and remove the poles from oarlocks. Move the folded canopy a couple of inches toward the bow and install oars onto the pins of oar locks.
If pinned oarlocks are not available, as in SD430 or SD470 for example, then aluminium support poles of 4-bow canopies may be attached directly to the splash guard protectors on top of the boat tubes. Plastic ties can be run through the support pole holes and rope holes in the splash guard. Properly adjusted lines will hold the canopy in place. Click on pictures below to zoom in.
If no points to attach support poles to top of tubes inflatable boat are available, then D-rings or some other grab-on contraption need to be glued.
