I am wondering if anyone has pictures of the various covers that my 1978 32' Sedan was designed to use. There are snaps and fastners on around the top above the sliding doors and down around the transom. There are others for the front windws and a few inside that I can't quite figure out. I suppose all of these things were options when the boat was new and a catalog of options would be great to see if one exists.

Also, are there companies that have the templates for these various covers or do I need to have someone make it from scratch.

Starting from the bow, there should be snaps below the seat where cushions snap in.
Above the seat there should be an aluminum channel running port and starboard where a canvas cover slides in to cover the cushions when not in use.
Around the perimeter of the windshield there should be snaps for a rectangular canvas.
Around the fly bridge exterior there should be snaps for a canvas cover.
Above the sliding door and under the lip of the salon roof there should be studs for lift-a-dot snaps for a "camper" canvas. Then down the sides of the salon there should be snaps for the sides of the camper canvas. Then along the base of the aft rail stanchions there should be snaps where the camper canvas snaps.
