The Canvas Shop in Huntington, L.I. got a lot of bad publicity a while ago. I mentioned then that they had done my dodger on a prior boat and the bimini on the current one and had done a fine job. Last season I got some pretty bad wear on the bimini, caused by my rolling it up without the supplied cover so it chafed badly on the backstays. The bimini had been through 4 seasons and it never even occurred to me to suggest it was their fault. I dropped the bimini off at the Canvas Store in the fall, they saw what was wrong, and did a nice job fixing it. I expected a bill; didn't get one. All I got was a call asking if I wanted to pick it up or if they should ship it. The only charge was the cost of shipping. Can't beat that.
