Huh. I use Sunbrella Jockey Red on my boat.

I made a jib bag in 2014 and a stack pack in 2016, and I had a bimini and cover made in 2017.

The 2014 jib bag is out in the sun for five months every year. The 2017 bimini is almost never in the sun because itís covered when not in use. The colors are almost a perfect match. Iím very impressed.

Admittedly the canvas youíre talking about is five years older. And Iím talking 5 months a year of Minnesota sun, maybe your canvas is getting 12 months a year of Florida sun.
