Grace, our 2008 SO 45DS came with Oceanair pleated hatch screens/shades. I've seen several posts on these little buggers, but not much has been said about the pleated screens propensity to blow out of the track in even a slight breeze.
Has anyone had any success in fixing this, short of total replacement? I.e. spraying the screen with a stiffening agent like clear polyurethane or starch. I do realize that anything I spray on the screen will reduce the flow of the screen.
Our 2009 SO 45DS was fitted with the Oceanair pleated hatch screens as well. They blew out and stretched after a 4 or 5 years. In the end we had them replaced with a new model of the screen that have 2 stiff cords that the new screens are attached to which now prevents them from blowing out. The original were a bad design by Oceanair, had them replaced by Navy Point Marine (Jeanneau Dealer) in Sackets Harbor, NY over the winter a few years ago.
