      Well for me it's pretty much never. Never finished my bridge enclosure and all my calls and appointments go unreturned and unmet.

      I used them because they came highly recommended. I think that things have changed recently.

        Work was top shelf. Communication is below what I expect from my employees.

            Ok here is my two cents. I have used her and found her and her staff to be pleasant and the price very good. That's the good news. The bad news is that the fit and finish was not good. Largely because they are going from a factory pattern. The original may or may not have fit great to begin with. Add to that a little margin for error and what you are left with may be disappointing results. In my case definitely so! Now if I lived close enough to her shop to physically return things that were a problem, I would not hesitate. If you live across the country, my advise would be to use a local canvas guy who is going to come to your boat and fit it to the boat.

            Even though the price will likely be more consider this: There is zero labor involved in the later route. With Leta you have to install all the snaps yourself. (fairly time consuming)

              I went down to Leta's found she was not interested in custom work. Not very impressed. Ended up local he came to the boat he installed and would not take a penny until I was 100% pleased. He does all of the Monaro work. I got a lot of custom work 40mil side windows 60 mil front screen with 3 pieces all of my flaps have velcro, my top is in two pieces. One on the radar arch and then the main body. Leta would not do that also two piece stern she would not do that either. Then I got a wind shield sun screen with additional custom snaps and a front center and rear door bug screen and upgraded sunbrella top for $200.00 more than her quote for stock and I would have had to install all of the snaps. I went back to him later and ordered a cover for my kicker and windlass did both for free. My top is 5 years old. Go have a look for you self.

                I ordered the raised bimini frame and top for my contessa and was happy with the work, even though it was relatively simple.

                Keep in mind, that all frames will be aluminum and have to be pop riveted together for shipping purposes.

                I would also be VERY clear as to where snaps or zippers are used. A friend bought one where all the panels snapped together with no zippers. I personally, hated that. So, just ask a ton of questions so you get a very clear picture of what you are getting.
