Measure maximum inside measurement from forward of companionway to bottom and add about 2-3 inches. 

Then take width outside companionway sides and add height of sides over the roof, to get width of screen.

Example: A 30" x 68" inside opening, would use a 36" x 72" screen. On the tapered screens, the tapering begins at the halfway point of the length, 34" and 39" respectively. For the 44 x 38 screen, the taper begins at 26 inches.

Companionway Measurement Guide:

  1. First measure Top opening "A" distance
  2. Measure Vertical Height "B" from top to bottom, where the screen lead weight will stand
  3. Add "A" to "B" plus approximately 3 inches to get total length of screen
  4. Measure "C" distance, outside handrails, and add height of handrail over the roof, on each side, to get width of screen
  5. On some boats, it is best to use a tapered screen, so measure "D" and add 1-2 inches on each side
  6. NOTES: Don't worry, Companionway screens can be up to 20% longer and 10-15% larger than measured ideal. 
    You can install a taller screen in positioning it a little forward, if possible, and remaining will lay on the bottom, outside of companionway entrance. Lead beads will also hold a wider than ideal screen.

We now have convenient optional snap kits for easy installation inside dodger or if you do not have siderails.

Example: For a 2008 Beneteau Oceanis 37 we took the following measurements:

  1. Measure "A": 38"
  2. Measure "B": 36"
  3. Add "A" to "B": 74" PLUS 3" = 77"
  4. Measure "C": 32" PLUS 3" PLUS 3" = 38"
  5. Measure "D": 21"

We then choose a 40" x 77" companionway for a perfect fit (a little bit wider but OK).
