Re: Good prices on Sunbrella?

Never used anything other than Sunbrella. We have a Sailite LZ-1 machine and my wife has made bimini, dodger, sail cover, dinghy cover, outboard cover and sacrifical cfor the jib out of it. We bought 40 yards of it from Sailrite when they had a 20% off coupon ( you can call them and ask them the next time they are running and they will tell you). You can also negotiate the price per yard when you by over 20 yards too. It may be worth it. Going into year 5 on the bimini and dodger and dinghy cover, the sunbrella is holding up well. Just make sure you rinse it a fair amnount in season and wash it in woolite and protect it with special spray every winter. Also use strataglass when making windows. Dont cheapen out with others as they will wave and also the clarity wont be there. You must also polish the strataglass with the special IMAR wax 2 times a year.
