The words Canopy and Enjoyable should never be used in the same sentence.....

To clarify the above, he was talking about the nice wooden canopy frame and not the clear plastic bit that gives all the aggro..so enjoyable can be used in this context I believe?

GeeW is not far wrong! Timber wrestling is no problem at all, entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable. Plastic canopy wrestling is whole different ball game, which is why I always order two (just in case).
Brian. :D :) :D

It’s been a wet day, I couldn’t get the grass cut and the fruit and veg harvest was halted as well. So I resorted to the workshop and trimmed up the canopy to fit the frame. The frame will now have to be painted before I attach the canopy with good old canopy glue and lots of masking tape.
