    replacement canvas for 1985 3870

    Where can I get the best deal? I have heard of a lady on the west coast but I do not have her name. Any help would be great.

    I've been using Leta for years. Great quality and very reasonable.

    Last year she did my bimini top and my cockpit cover top on my 3870. I sent her my old ones down as templates and the new ones I got back fit perfect. Very fast service too.

    Leta is half the price of our local canvas people. She ships all over the world.

    Check her out for sure!!

    Just a few examples of her prices.

    Boot for the top bimini $40.00.

    A large Sea B Que BBQ cover $35.00

    Rear closure from the radar arch to the rear top of the bimini. This had 2 long zippers 2 pieces of rod for the sliding rails and a full length of heavy vinyl. She called me and said it was ready to ship and the price was $75.00. I told her that was too cheap and sent her $125.00.

    When the package came to my house, not only was a very nice piece of canvas in there, but all of the snaps, a real nice hole punch, a real "Vise Grip" and an adapter kit for the vise grip to install the snaps. The vinyl was sown into the piece with protective brown paper also sown in. The whole thing was then wrapped in about 2 yards of Sunbrella. I can't figure out how she can do this!!

    Awesome!!

                    the bridge on the 3870 and the bridge on the 3270 look awfully close in size - any idea if they are?

                    If so - I know some one (wink wink) who may be interested in your canvas

                      Leta is great from all opinions if you live in the PNW. However, I contacted her on doining mine and was told that since I live in Texas, it would be impossible for her to do it with ensuring a great fit due to the distance. I too am wanting new canvas. Last time mine was changed was 1997, on my 1989 3870. Good luck.

                            In March 2020 I purchased 2006 ciera 245 cruiser, I knew it had a weathered worn canvass top, this has a lot of use glass windows which are yellowed scratched and tearing..I’ve called around Seattle area for replacement costs, all seem to ask what my boat serial is and quote the same price. This top needs also back camper Assy.. they are all booked out thru first of next year. The $5000 price tag comes with it.,but none wants to commit to making one now.they will say when so an so comes back we’ll call you. No one does.a question I have is some say they have original patterns. Maybe some may have to custom make. Well is it same price or highest price if they have the patterns and or custom build there own patterns.? Anyone have this problem on costs?
