John (Super Hawaii 40) just made one himself on a sewing machine at home using material gotten from Sunbrella i believe. He psoke with a local canvas maker to get the gouge on measurements and snaps. He just recently tried it out and it turned out well...

I make covers in Michigan and I would recommend using Sunbrella fabric. Because it has little canvas fade and is mildew resistant. Not to mention it is fully breathable. Anything else just email or call my shop.

Craig,
That seems really high. I'm going to get a full cover done for the 28, and I'm getting estimates of $700 for Aqualon and $800 for sunbrella. Anybody recommend one over the other??

canvas price

That price seems high to me too. I would go with sunbrella over aqualon. SUnbrella has been around for a long time and has a 5 year warranty. Aqualon may have a warranty, I can't remember. I like the fact that sunbrella breathes so your boat doesn't get mildewed. I just did a cover for a 38' Donzi ZX and charged 800.00 for a cockpit. You should shop around. Hope this helps. BIll

The quote that I posted came from ABC covers in Grove. I received a similar quote from Hays's Canvas in Dewey, OK. Granted I haven't seen eithers work yet, but they both had Aqualon and Sunbrella available. The Sunbrella is about $3 / foot higher then the Aqualon. I haven't decided which one to go with, but it sounds like the aqualon is more durable.

Craig,

Craftsman Upholstery is around the corner from my work in Fairfax. Give Eric a call- 703-278-8550. He has done some work on my hot rod with my satisfaction, but nothing on my boat (yet). I see boats in his shop all the time getting interiors redone and covers made. They also recover all the seats in our company trucks.
