Hi All,

Is there kind of rule of thumb for distance between snaps?  I've seen anywhere from 4 to 10 inches in pictures posted and on boats at the marina.  I just finished my first project (pic below) enclosures for an existing bimini and dodger.  I need to put a few more snaps in but don't want to go crazy.

I've always gone with 10 " max and as required for where the canvas needs held to make it follow contours.
