When you find someone, make sure to spend the extra to get UV protected thread. Its significantly more expensive but every canvas installation I have inherited (on purchased used boats) its not the canvas that gives up first, its the thread.

I had UV thread on our new 49' sailboat which was in the Caribbean/Mediterranean sun for 6 years. When the boat was sold the buyers thought the canvas was new.
