Taylor Made Products Introduces

Shade Tops for Inflatable Boats



            GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – June 24, 2008 – Taylor Made Products has designed a shade top to fit inflatable boats. The top accommodates boat widths up to 5 feet 7 inches and lengths up to 10 feet 8 inches. The kit comes complete with shade top, frame, marine-grade hardware, storage bag and instructions.

Once the permanent hardware is mounted to the bow and stern of the boat, the top sets up and breaks down easily. The shade top allows for comfortable operation of the boat without sacrificing headroom.

“Inflatable boat owners now have available protection from the sun while out on the water, which until now consisted of hats and sunscreen,” said Dave Karpinski, vice president of marketing, Taylor Made Products. “The shade top kit includes everything needed to make installation quick and easy.”
