Questions & Answers
The picture shows that the screen comes with suction cups. Is that the case? Could this fit an opening as small as 22 inches wide and 55 inches ?
We have a lot of boats from the 70's and 80's in Sweden, so yes, the net comes with two suction cups. It is typical for them to have openings like the 1980th. In general, they are too long, but if rolled up at one end they will be the right size. With regard to the width, you shouldn't have any problems. Over a period of 7 years, we sold about 2000 of these nets to customers in Sweden. In / Per
What about a 1989 Catalina 36 companionway? Is this an option?
There is a large opening in the companionway on Catalina boats. The Catalina 36 has one of the widest companionways in the pictures I have seen. There will still be bugs in the final version of bug screen #1460.

I like how it is well made and efficient
In my Amazon recommendations, I saw this Waterline product. A direct hit was achieved by the algorithm. Despite the fact that my sailboat is about 30 years old, it does not have a screen, and I have been searching for a solution to keep flying insects away for a long time. It is quite annoying that summer fruit flies bother me because I am allergic to mosquitoes. As well as a companionway screen, internal hatch screen, a couple of large hatch screens on the exterior and a few small portlight screens, I ordered four more I like them all because they are They would have been inexpensive to buy since I could not have sewn them and I would have had to buy materials to make them It seems to me that they are reasonably They've been my primary source of information for an extended period of time and I really enjoy using It is easy to manage, has a compact size, and prevents bugs from getting inside. A couple of eye straps were installed to the sides of my companionway hatch to tie the screen to. This made it easy to move.
I attached the screen to either side of the hatch with the weighted edges. Despite having lines near them, the eye straps keep the gap between my eye and mask to a minimum. The suction cups did not stick to my gel coat and the eye straps did not leave any holes in my aging gel coat. After some practice, you'll be able to enter and exit the boat while the screen is This is worth it if you want to keep biting insects away from the cabin. It takes just a few seconds to install the hatch screens. You are ready to go once you drop the trays over the hatch. The most convenient way for me is to wear and remove them from inside the boat. With the screen in place, you will notice a decrease in air flow. The mesh is fine enough to keep out small flying insects, so that is to be expected. It is also nice to see the portlight screens. The adjustment needs to be placed outside the boat, which takes a little more time to install, but once in place it can be done in no time at all. It is easy to clean acrylic/plex hatches and ports with the suction cups provided. An alternative that provides a more permanent installation is their stick-on magnetic option. So far, the cups are going well on plastic ports and hatches, so I haven't tried the magnets yet. It is true that the plastic needs to be cleaned.

I tested it out on my 22ft Catalina sailboat and it worked perfectly
It fits snug as a glove, keeps bugs out, and looks excellent. For the 4 instead of 5 stars, the reason was the price. The fit was exactly what I needed and the price was steep. It is not possible to make an this, each time we went in or out of the house, it took a few minutes for it to be reset. There should have been at least a half inch more on each side so I could move around. The application did its job, except for that. The net kept the bugs out, the air in, and the weights kept the price low.

POS in its truest sense
It only took a month for the stitching around the side to come off. It is likely that I would have returned the product and asked for a refund if I were in the US.

A few flying insects managed to fly into my cabin as I was approaching the cabin while I was sleeping on my sailboat
As soon as I learned the technique, I swung the button or side up and was able to enter easily once I was tied to the netting. The suction cups are useless, but tying the top of the netting was very effective. My only complaint would have been that it was too narrow to lay over the complete companion way. I would have given it 5 stars if it were wider. Thanks for the bug screen. I am very happy with it.

The program works perfectly! I am using it on my Beneteau 42CC hatch
It is a universal fit, so it's a little big for the boat. By using the straps, it is easy to fit over the hatch and secure it in place. As it is weighted, it makes getting into and out of the companionway easy, without being forced to disassemble it completely.

I have pondered plenty of designs to screen our companionway on our sailboat, but none are as stunningly simple and effective as this design
I love how simple and easy it is to use this web. I think it's more convenient and less obtrusive than something hinged or folding, and it requires less effort than Velcro Thanks to the person who came up with the idea for this system.

However, it does not work as well as it should
In its installed state, the unit functions well. In order to secure it, I had to figure it out. As the two suction cups provided did not secure this net to the boat very well, I bought some magnets that I attached (the needle and thread always helps) to the net, which are attached to the boat by adhesive, as well as some magnets that stick to mating magnets. In short, it now works well and snaps into place quickly.

According to the description, it fulfills the purpose
Despite its wide size, it may not be ideal for sailboats over 30 feet in length. However, smaller sailboats might fit well in this width. For the connecters to fit, they need to be modified. However, I must repeat myself. A sailboat would be an excellent match for this product.
