  • Custom Canvas Top

    Does any one have any recommendations for anyone in the anchorage area that does canvas and eisenglass work?

    Jim's in Wasilla

    Jim's upholstery in the valley does custom work and he's very good. He made a boat cover for my jetboat 5 years ago and it's still in excellent condition. Give him a call.

        Ben and company at Silverstreak do excellent work and use Topgun fabric - which is very durable - much better than others, such as Sunbrella.

                Busters all the way

                I had Buster's make a winter cover for my North River. Top notch work and garanteed for life. When I need a new canvas top I won't hesitate to take it to him.

                  Boat Top Work

                  I am a friend of Buster Hall. He does excellent work and has been in the business of building boat tops for a long time. I don't think you will hear anybody complain about his work. Buster happens to be an really nice guy and gives back to the community for what that's worth. He was an International Director for Lions Clubs International and represented our state very well. Buster's is the place.

                      Again for Buster's

                      Buster's did my winter slant back top, as well as my enclosure on my boat. If you get it in this time of year, he might deal on price, and the schedule will be easy. If you wait until the boat show to order, you'll be booking for June or July.

                      Top notch quality, excellent customer service - you won't be disappointed (with other than the price tag - they're all really PROUD of the work!) :rolleyes:

                      Cheers,

                      SH

                        SH,

                        Do you have any pictures of the back cover you can post? I am curious as to how they attach it and how may holes they have to drill in your boat.

                          Jim, I don't have pics of the full top, but I can get one of the slant cover - which essentially uses the same snap locations . . . . I'll see if I can get it posted in the next day or so . . .

                          R,

                            Thanks SH,

                            I look forward to seeing the pictures. One concern I have is that if you put a snap in a piece of aluminum of your boat, especially if it is painted, are you not subject to that being a crevice corrosion location in the future? Do they do something to seal this? I had a builder tell me recently that the best way to minimize corrosion on a painted aluminum boat is to drill all the holes and mount everything possible before it is painted, since any penetration of the paint will eventially be a corrosion point.

                            In my case, the boat will be bare aluminum, but I think this can still be an issue, only to a lesser extent. Here is a post from another forum discussing this topic. http://www.ifish.net/board/showthread.php?p=1100878 If anyone has more information on this topic, please speak up, I would like to learn more about this topic.
