Canvas shade extends from structure of boat, can withstand wind speeds of 50 mph


Rodan Enterprises LLC has introduced an integrated bridge design for its unique SureShade Power-Driven Retractable Boat Top.

The integrated installation (shown on a 45' Silverton Convertible in photo above) puts SureShade's actuator cylinders within the fiberglass cavity of the bridge. SureShade's unique, patent-pending arched roller also contributes to the integrated look by resting nicely along the curves of the boat when retracted.

The result is a canvas shade that, at the touch of a button, automatically extends from within the interior structure of the boat, without the need for any supporting side poles. It can be operated while underway withstanding wind speeds of 50 mph. This integrated design is also suitable for boats with hardtops.

Backed by decades of marine engineering, manufacturing and fabrication experience, the independently-tested design of SureShader can be customized to fit any boat type and flexible mounting options allow for surface-mount or integrated installation on any boat with a radar arch, hard top, flybridge, tower or t-top.

The SureShader power-driven retractable boat top is available from a network of trained, certified marine fabricators. For more information, visit or call toll free in the US, 1+877.333.8323.
