Canvas Costs along America's Great Loop route
I'm wondering how much the cost for canvas work varies in the Eastern U.S. I have a '97 Marine Trader in winter layup in Wisconsin that I'm prepping for a Great Loop Cruise starting late this summer from Chicago. I plan to be in the North Channel of Lake Huron mid-summer. I just got an estimate for a new canvas flybridge enclosure from the yard's canvas contractor, and it seemed a little high compared to what I previously read on this forum.
They're asking $10.5K for the work which includes a 1" stainless 5-bow Bimini frame, Sunbrella top, 3 Strataglass front panels, 5 or 6 aft panels, and door. Does anyone have any recent knowledge about what this work costs outside of Southern Lake Michigan? If $10.5K is out of line, I'd consider getting the work done while I'm on the loop trip. Any recommendations for canvas shops along the Great Loop?
