See all other sizes for hatches and portlights. Good sleep is important. Sleeping at its best at sea is no exaggeration. Relaxing and holiday in combination and being slowly cradled to sleep cannot be wrong. Unfortunately, it can be wrong. It gets bright early in the morning and it is warm in the boat. The sun often rises 4 - 5 in the morning and it is probably earlier than most people want to get up in the morning. There are few blinds that today can offer a darkness for the best sleep that you deserve. Blackout Blinds for Companionway from Waterline Design offer a practical solution.
Darkness is essential to sleep. The absence of light sends a critical signal to the body that it is time to rest. Light exposure at the wrong times alters the body's internal "sleep clock"?the biological mechanism that also regulates sleep-wake cycles?in ways that interfere with both the quantity and quality of sleep. Managing your exposure to light in your boat and in your cabin is fundamental to creating a healthy sleep environment. With awareness, attention, and some simple planning, you can create a boat berth that guards against unwanted light at night and protects the quality of your sleep until you are ready to wake. A blind for the companionway keep outside light from disturbing your sleep. Make sure window coverings are heavy enough to fully block light, and are well fitted to avoid slivers of streetlight or early morning sunlight from filtering in. Even brief exposure to light can interfere with sleep. Our blackout blinds from Waterline Design are designed to help you have a better sleep when you have Blinds for the Companionway. Remember that some hulls also let through a lot of light.
You can also have an open hatch, dark inside in your cabin and still have some ventilation air / in the boat. We have designed the blind with double layer of material that overlaps each other. It will create an air gap. The air is small so air will not run fully but it will create ventilation. If you want to have greater air quantity, you can put something (like a sponge) between the layers to force it open.

  2. Use the rope at the top of the blind to secure it. Tie the rope in for example the clutches och use the suction cups on the window or gelcoat.
  3. Lift the edge when you go in and out of the boat. The blind falls easily back in place.
  4. In the morning, just fold it and store it in the mesh bag. Don't put a wet blind back in the storage bag.
