Need Sailboat cover in DC area

I live in the Washington DC area and I am looking for someone who can make me a winter boat cover for my sailboat. I keep the boat out of the water during the winter on my trailer. I can''t find anyone who will come to my boat to make the measurements.

I want to avoid taking it out of the water just yet and trailering it somewhere. Does anyone know of any one who is local who can do the work - or did anyone buy a sail boat cover from somewhere that would have measurments for Precision - 21?

I''m not from the DC area so I don''t know if there is anyone in your immediate area that makes boat covers. There might be someone in the Annapolis area.

I do know of a Canadian company that seems to specialize in winter storage covers. While I don''t own one, I have seen them and they look well made.

The company is Quinte Canvas Mfg. in Kinston, Ontario, Canada. They have a website- www.topshop.on.ca .

I just looked up their phone number- (800) 268-4186 . I''m sure they can help you.

Frank,
are you still looking for a cover? The Sept/Oct 2004 issue of Good Old Boat has a way to rig your own cover with a tarp, pvc piping, etc.

Fairclough (www.fairclough.com, tel. 203-787-2322) in New Haven, CT is the best. Not sure how often they get to DC, but they have measurements for many boats. Also, you can take your own deck dimensions according to their instructions, as I did.
