boat cover

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking to get a new cover custom made for my 16' boat. I want to get one made of the Sunbrella or equivalent material. Any recommendations here in the Twin Cities?

I believe Canvas Craft is in Anoka. I have one of their covers and the quality is top notch. Canvas Plus is in Rogers.

I am scheduled for my cover at the end of this month. I met the owner at the Boat Show, he seemed like a real nice guy. Very competitive pricing for TopGun Bow to Stern Snap on Covers. I have had a ton of issues with my two piece custom canvas cover (full windshield), so I am converting to this TopGun Material and a 1 piece.

I went with Canvas Craft, they treated me very well and didn't jerk me around at all.They added a trolling motor pocket the next year with out any fuss.The price was as cheap as I found through out the cities area.
There is a Canvas plus store up in the Rogers area, I think they are off HWY 94 just West of Rogers exit.They didn't match the price of Canvas Craft though.
Cabela's sells Cambrella covers ready made also, check them to see if they carry one you like.
Good Luck,Benny

Sunbrella is breathable but it hold alot of dust in the fabric and hard to clean. TopGun is a similar fabric but it is totally waterproof and is easy to clean. The waterproof coating also gives it some additional strength, just make sure you have some type of venting built into it. grin.gifgrin.gif

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
