Bay Area Canvas Makers

Looking for a recommendation for someone to build a custom Bimini enclosure for my flybridge.

I'm based in SF but anyway in the bay is cool.

DO NOT USE ANDY FROM GRAND MARINA IN ALAMEDA. Apparently accountability and attention to his customers is furthest from his mind. I've been calling for a quote for over 3 weeks, when I finally get him on the line he quoted the wrong thing.

If your going to get my business you at least need to act like you want it.

Call Starbuck Canvas in Sausalito. He did our canvas about 20 years ago and I'm having him do it again! Good people.

I've found that six months is about the right expectation for any work done on the boat

Don't know anything about the price but some of the canvas that was on our boat when we bought it was from "The Canvas Man" in Alameda. The canvas (Sunbrella) has held up remakably well. Not so the seams but I'm assuming they were all done before Tenara thread from Gore was available. My wife has been repairing seams as they fail with Tenara, which has saved the canvas covers.

I'm amazed how horrible service is in the marine industry. Comical actually.
