Boat Cover Repair

14 posts in this topic

Hi All- Just got the boat out of storage, only to find the cover seam separated across the entire width of it. Anybody have a repair company to recommend? Any ideas on $? I would rather not buy a new one if not absolutely necessary. Thx, 8-Ball. (North Metro).

I get my work on boat lift covers done at Canvas Plus in Rogers, pricing always seems fair. Its right off the freeway on Industrial Blvd.

I just had mine repaired at North Country Canvas in Robbinsdale. Dave runs it out of his garage and makes custom covers for a few dealerships (they look real nice for those in need of a new cover). It sounds like I had the same problem seam ripped all the way across when trailering. He repaired that seam and reinforced all of the other seams on the cover for $50 (18.5 ft boot). Turned it around in a day. I would highly recommend. Just google the name provided or "canvas repair minneapolis" is how I found it.

If you fish the Chisago area, stop at Lakes Canvas. It is located on the north side of Hwy 8 just before you hit the downtown area of Chisago City. Very nice people to work with imo.

8-ball,

Had mine done at suburban tent in Roseville, a few years ago, good work and quick turn around and a fair price.

County road C and just west of Fairview.

Canvas Craft on highway 10 just west of Anoka is closeest to you and their work is top quality. Highly recommend for quality work and service. They might even be able to repair it while you wait.

I just got a new snap-on cover made at DNP Canvas in Cambridge and it looks great. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Their prices were cheaper and quality as good as anywhere.

Canvas Craft in Rogers just added vents to my snap cover this spring and replaced acouple of brokens snaps, they were cheap and worked fast. Good value IMO. Should have gotten my cover done there to begin with...

There is Wyoming canvas right next to Hallberg Marine and they do nice work. There is a canvas shop north of Hugo on 61, There is a canvas shop just outside Chisago on Hwy 8 and they all do repair work. Lots of options from what other posters have replied with.

Have to agree about the C craft in anoka they made a cover for me in 1993.Still going strong and it it's stored outside every winter since '93.I suggest you lightly use a bleach solution with your soap and wash(scrub)your cover in the spring every season so mold/bacteria/leaves&debris don't end up having a party in/on your cover.Make sure when you purchase your cover it is poly treated with uv protection.More $ but well worth the investment!c63

Thx to all who replied. I had Dave at North Country Canvas do it. Dropped it off Mon. am., was ready in the afternoon. As MuskieLaw pointed out-he stitched split seam and reinforced all the other seams for $50. Did great work!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
