    1999 Bimini factory

    Does anybody know what firm(s) manufactured the original Bayliner tops? I know "Great Lakes Boat Top" can still provide complete tops for a 2006 Four Winns 378 Vista at a very fair cost. They do not need the boat to build the tops/clears/etc....

          BTW, call Leta, don't email her. Also, have your boat's Hull ID Number handy when you call her. She uses the number t determine whic pattern to use.

            BTW...its her daughter Dede who now runs it, not Leta....she retired, but its the same quality work and materials.... My replacement fit perfectly! You will get exactly the same product/pattern, as in the original year your boat was made.....but more choices of fabric, colors, etc.....

              Awesome folks, I did send an email with the HIN. Dede is going to get me a quote, but given this forum thread, I'm "calling" now. Thank!

                  Leta was not that good at responding to email. Dede may be different.

                  Over the last 18 years I've gotten OEM and custom canvas from Leta for a number of boats. The prices have always been great and the fit and finish awesome.

                    Dede has always replied promptly to me, and I pestered her a bunch. She helped me to pick out my final product, material wise, listing the differences between all the choices, etc....
                    What I did not expect, was that they fit the canvas/covers to a exact fit, and I mean they had flaps and cut-outs, etc, where the cleats were, so a rope could still be used without having to unsnap stuff, or a grab rail, or light, etc....they knew the exact spot where Bayliner put the trim, and factored all that into their product....not sure anybody else knows this stuff without having to see the boat in person....????

                  They rock. They were able to make some slight modifications to the patterns that I requested. Strong +1

                      In case they did not mention it, they will not install snaps on the canvas, wherever it attaches to the boat. The reason is that the snap layout varies slightly from boat to boat. They will include the necessary snaps and a tool to attach them to the canvas.
