Default Roll up cabin doors? Anyone have any info on them?

One of the huge hold ups for me with the boat is that I can not come up with a idea for the cabin door. The swing door that was in there was OK but dated for sure. Since I am going to such an extream with this do over I figured I wanted something different. I was talking to Stinson a while back and he had mentioned to me a roll up door but did not know who made one. Then the other day I was looking in the chief thread and saw what I assume is what he meant. Does anyone know what this thing looks like down? Also how it is made.

Thanks
Jon

If all else fails you could check with Outerlimits. Here is a picture of an OL with a roll up door that somebody posted a while ago. I don't have any other info on it though.

Try getting a hold of Bobby at Chief he has put them in the 36's and has done at least one in a 41 Apache.

That style of door is known as a "tambor" door.

Wouldn't it be kind of a pain to have to reach down to the floor when ever you open and close it?

Unless it was electric and opened with a switch...
(just trying to make some extra work for you)

Damn Bill YOU SUCK..... Ok now we have to motorize it I just hate the way it is now. The door never really closes correctly and the thing can slam shut.
