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!

    • Keep voting democrat, Minnesota.....
    • Human nature. Especially when one is emotionally invested in elections.   I haven't commented too much on this Russian stuff. Could be true. Could be all just many upset about the election results.    At the very least, Trump may be just getting a taste of his own medicine(the claim he had evidence BHO was not a citizen, the National Enquirer stories about Cruz)
    • Did "YOU" and the "WIFE" enjoy growing up in the cities?  Me personally I grew up in a farm town in southern MN and have lived in Shakopee for the past 25 years.  I absolutely cannot stand living in the cities.  Everything is amped up 500%.  Driving is nuts. Traffic is nuts.  Ever ride your bike down Minnehaha falls on the weekend?  Kids sports is outrageous.  In general if you want to fish, sled, atv, your driving up north...with everyone else on a Friday night.  Unless you get lucky as heck most neighbors are either phony as heck or you never see them.  Seems as though most folks never leave the house.  Unless you have lots of space/land you will have neighborhoods doing fireworks whenever, dogs barking, snowblowing at 10:00PM etc...  Kids rarely go out and play in the cities.  I've discovered that they are constantly being shuttled to event after event, so the notion that the kids on the street will play together is few and far between.  The schools, at least in Shakopee have been great from an educational standpoint!  However because they shift classes and actual schools every few years, my girls have never had the same classmates.  In the town I grew up in we only had 120 kids in the class, so you pretty much knew every kid.  Bussing can be quite limited when your kid wants to do afterschool activities and sports.  Talk about income inequality...in my hometown the farmer was generally the "rich guy" but you never really knew it.  In the cities you definitely know who the rich folks are and boy does it bring out the competition in folks.  And I'm not talking CEO's and big wigs, I'm talking 2 professionals pulling down 6 figures each.    That's the other thing most people skim over when talking about the greatness of the metro.  Sure if you can afford $125 tickets for the wild game, or $85 tickets for a play, or "shopping" as your activity it IS a great place.  But if your not willing to pony up the money for those events it can be a little boring.  That's why I enjoy Shakopee in that I can head down to the river and take a nice long walk in peace and quiet.  Especially in the winter!   Maybe because I'm getting older and older but this notion that life is all about money, money, money seems less and less important.  Granted I understand you have to make a living and provide for your family, which is why I deal with it, but ultimately you have decide what your family wants out of life.  That is why I am encouraging my kids to seek a life away from the big metro area.  Especially since they enjoy being outside so much.  Full disclose we bought a small cabin last year as our way to "deal with it".  Now I have a place to go to get away AND in 6 years when my youngest graduates high school I will be out of here...  Good luck!!!!
    • True, but we have liberal corporate run media and the fact you are seemingly blind to that fact shows your bias.     
    • my old house was a 6.5 x 12' (No V front) with an outside 2x4' in front for bathroom.   I really didn't notice any difference in towing it.  I know a guy who had his house built with about 2' wide V in front which opens the entire area up quite a bit and he wishes now he would have went 3' wide.  And this still gives you plenty of space on the V to put your LP tanks.     Wish I would have done that on my new 8x16'.   The little gas the V front may save you, to me is not worth the value of that extra space.    
    • I thought there was no point?
    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
