Is this canopy easily removable to allow the boat to be stored upside down during bad weather or winter?

Live in Illinois and would need to store outdoors in winter with no indoor storage room; would prefer not to have snow accumulate inside boat.
Asked by: Yoda
The canopy lies flat in it's folded position so removal is not necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boat Kids love this boat! It's a great option if you live on a lake. It holds five people and is very sturdy. Love the built in cooler. Relaxing but great exercise also. Home depot has the best price after shopping around. Highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy I got this as a mothers day gift. It took about 3 weeks to arrive.We couldn't wait to get it in the water. It is a lot of fun but def not made for 4 people. Easy to maneuver and great workout. But we noticed the left side was leaning. Also the pedals kept coming off. After a few weeks of we used the boat again, it was leaning even more. Pulled the boat out and it is holding water. I contacted Home Depot and was told return time is up to contact manufacturer. We purchased from Home Depot because they stand behind their products and have good customer service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unrealized expectationa The product arrived practically with no packaging. The boat is poorly designed/ made as it is explained below: 1) The slider seats were poorly made and kept coming off their grooves when you were leaning back on them. 2) After few few hours of paddling the boat on the lake one of the paddle shafts came off its seat (The screw holding the shaft got loose). 3) The plastic foot pedals made of two interlocking pieces kept breaking open. 4) The boat is designed for ride by two light-weight riders. A single person ride on the boat makes it extremely unbalanced ( You can not seat at the center of the boat , you have to either sit on the right or on the left seats. This make the boat sinking under your weight which cause the paddles not functioning in full capacity). 5) The speed of the boat is extremely low due to very small pddles used in its design

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Fun I've had this boat out several times now. It's easy to load & unload with just my wife & I.The rod holders are very useful as we just toss out a lure put rod in holder & just peddle. Good excercise & fun catching some fish. After the sun gets too hot we just pull up the canopy creating instant shade. This Sun Dolphin is excellent for getting off the couch & into the Great Outdoors for some fresh air, fun & excercise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sun-Dolphin is a good boat This is our second Sun-Dolphin. The first was a 5 passenger "Spirit" model purchased in 1995, but was stolen. The new boat is more maneuverable, but it does not appear to have the same quality. The back doesn't seem to be as roomy, only has room for two small children, and the new ribbed flooring is very time consuming and harder to clean. But.overall, it is a good boat.
