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

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
