Hi all. Our V-berth windows do not have shades and so I would like to install some. Assuming these will need to fasten the wall with screws I was curious what the wall thickness was. The last thing I want is to puncture the boat. Is 1/4 deep safe?

Hi Sundaydriver although I can not comment on the thickness of the wall in the forward cabin i think you would screwing  in to the cabin facure and not the actual shell of the boat. Also it would be good if you could completed the signiture with boat model, number etc so others have a better idea how to respond.

Would it not be wise to fit thin battens round first with Sika adhesive, then screw to those?

Hi Ian2019 - thanks for your reply. Details added to email signature.

I wasn't aware of the material stackup from the cabin face through the hull. I figured there must be some amount of depth before hitting anything structural but don't want to risk it. I like the other posters idea of bonding on a facesheet and screwing to that, although it won't look as clean as a direct fasten I suppose.

As you have a 388 not sure if you went for Comfort package, most boats come with it and therefore have a word with your dealer as he should have fitted all the blinds for you as part commissioning.  Save you the hassle! Enjoy your new 388.
