where to find enclosure patterns

I have a 20'grady white I want to make an enclosure for

Hi Cindy,
That is great, but there are no boat enclosure panel patterns for you to buy anywhere, so you will have to make your own. You can do this with 4 mil clear plastic, black sharpie, t-pins and snap sockets ( the male part of the snap) which can actually be used to sandwich and hold the plastic to the snap on the boat.

You start by pinning the plastic to the top in the center and pulling the plastic taught down to the center snap below, then working your way outwards from the center. Re-adjusting until you get the desired fit. Using the sharpie you mark snap locations, panel break locations and zipper location, along with the start and stop of the zipper. Don't forget to mark inside and outside. Be careful with the sharpie, one mark on the boat and it is permanent.

There are several good videos on youtube that should help you out as well
Best of luck on that, I'll be here if you need any answers specifically once you get going. Feel free to contact me anytime and post pictures when your done.
