Re: Sunbrella: What color is used on your boat?

Charcoal grey, but considering a switch to Black or Captain Navy Supreme with Linen Flock. I've been taking courses at The Marine Canvas Institute and learned how to do a Bimini. Next session includes a Dodger I believe. I've also purchased a used Juki walking foot sewing machine. I may experiment first with something cheap. The Dodger intimidates.

My Toast canvas just keep going and going. I recently reused a 7 year old awning (toast) to make spray cloths. We also have Navy canvas that has held up very well.
