Re: Installing dodger questions

x2...take a pic send to a canvas or even better a car upholestery shop, why better cause they are much cheaper

I had some work done up in california by a VERY skilled mexican upholester, he did stuff for my boat as well as an old honda cb750...redid seats, foam etc...

try to avoid sail lofts as they will be much more expensive

do yourself a favor and buy scrap sumbrella or dodger canvas as well as some uv resistant thread(nylon)

then with dodger, thread, and scraps say you need this trimmed here and there, reinforced here, made to this shape...show pic

thats all most good canvas or upholester workers need

they have great eyes for detail

I just had my dodger fixed and stitched and reinforced down here

$25 bucks and I have a nice sealed and refitted dodger

cheers

Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
