    Boat Canvas Vancouver B.C.-gctid824870

    I'm looking to replace my camper back canvas on my Ciere 245, and was wondering if anybody from the lower mainland "Vancouver B.C." Could give me the thumbs up on a shop, or even a warning to stay away from a given shop. A name that was tossed to me was Bruno, who did some good work at Reed Point Marina, but I don't have a number.

    Any info greatly appreciated.

    I have been very pleased with the work I have had done by Master Craft Boat Coverings Ltd, #27 -12820 Trites Road, Richmond BC, 604 - 277 - 1421. They have been in business for a long time and I have always felt I received good quality and service.

        Thanks Ray

        I think those are the guys I phoned for a general quote, but there was a language barrier there. I'll drive in to Richmond and talk face to face.

          Thanks Ricomoni

          Yup I get you! There's a lot of shops you don't want on your boat! Your reply is one of 3 shops I've been warned against. There's a shop in Chilliwack that gets highly recommended, but a long ways to drag the boat

                  Anyone used Leta's Topshop?

                  http://letastopshop.com/

                  Heard: terrible customer service, good products. Not far from Vancouver.

                      Waiting a week for an estimate from Mastercraft.

                      Must be busy, maybe a good sign

                        Let us know the outcome. Will they come to the boat or do we have to take the boat to them?

                            Heard lots of good things about Leta's. Spoke with her on the phone. She worked in the canvas dept at Bayliner and got the patterns when they stopped making the canvas themselves. So she doesnt need to go to your boat. You can do the snaps yourself or have a local do it. I need the frame(s) also, as my original factory bimini got legs last year and walked off after 15 years. The insign glass didnt go anywhere as it was stored below. So I might as well get the back bimini and camper back/sides too. She wants to break the frames down (cut) for shipment since they are oversized, but I would rather not. She is open to shipping via Greyhound though she has never done that, so I am checking that option for the frames only.

                              Mastercraft came in way over budget

                              It was double the other quote I received.

                              Will keep looking
