Re: Snaps pulling through on sailcover
You need to reinforce the sail cover so that the snaps don't pull through, then install replacement snaps. I had a couple pull through on the rail covers, and simply installed a 2 inch square of sunbrella material to strengthen those spots.
You will need a powerful sewing machine, sunbrella material and thread, a crimp tool for the snaps (sold by sailrite), and the snaps of course.
At that point you might find it simpler to find a canvas maker and get them to fix it.
