This summer, we’ll do things a bit differently. We have Outland Hatch Covers for the four opening hatches (love these!). Those are on the outside and already installed, so nothing to do there.
Oh, and all that residue from the Command Strips? It’s tough to get off since you shouldn’t use harsh chemicals on Lexan and you shouldn’t scrape at all. I ended up using diluted cleaning vinegar (roughly 50/50 with water) — quite a bit came off the first time, then I used it maybe once a week on what was left. Little by little, most of it has come off . . . but there are still a few stubborn bits.
On the two big “windows” we have Phifertex Plus snap-on shade covers that we use when we’re aboard. I’m simply going to put the Reflectix under these, as I saw several other boats do in the storage yard. That’ll be easy too.
I used the Command Strips because I was worried about not being able to get other tape off the windows after it had sat in the sun for several months.
We also learned from some Gemini owners that it’s better to put the Reflectix on the outside of the windows. Seems that having it on the inside does let a certain amount of that reflected heat stay in the boat, and that reflected heat and light can have a tendency to warp the hatches and big non-opening ports.
