General Discussion / Re: Foam-backed Capitano sources...
« on: January 16, 2013, 07:49:39 AM »
Minuph, that was one of my concerns that I forgot to express.  The sagging issue.  I agree that I will have to glue both the foam to the plywood and the vinyl to the foam.  Yuck.  Darren, I am doing this for a customer not myself.  He is going to deal with the attachment issues. I am just going to cover a number of 1/4" plywood pieces with a marine vinyl called Nautolex Capitano.

General Discussion / Foam-backed Capitano sources...
« on: January 15, 2013, 05:14:17 PM »
Hi everyone!  Here I am again with another issue.  I have a job that only needs five yards of foam-backed Capitano and the minimum order for the color I need will be 15 to 20 yards.  I am covering plywood panels that will fasten to the wall of a camper. I'd rather not have to order the extra yardage and sit on it for who knows how long.  What do you folks do?  Should I get 1/4 foam and glue it to the plywood and then cover it with plain Capitano?  Can I even get 1/4 foam?  Thanks!

General Discussion / Difficulty finding sample of 40 gauge acrylic...
« on: December 10, 2012, 10:01:14 AM »
I need a 40 gauge acrylic product for a job I'm quoting so it matches what he has now.  60 gauge is just too thick for this application.  I tried to get Tri Vantage to send me a sample of 40 gauge Sea Clear but they will not do it.  They said I have to just buy a whole sheet.  Does anyone out there have a sample of 40 gauge Sea Clear or another brand that I can show to my customer?  Thanks! :o

Just received samples of 60 gauge Makrolon and I know I need something that's 40 gauge for this project.

It could be 60 gauge Makrlon.  I have samples coming.  Has anyone sewn this before?

I had someone drop off a dodger with what appears to be similar to EZ2CY in it.  He wants us to quote replacing the glass for him and he doesn't want Strataglass.  He prefers the more optically correct product like he has now.  The only experience we've had with EZ2CY is when we had to have a company in Fort Lauderdale glue the panels for us.  They couldn't be sewn.  The glass is too tough.  However, the product used on this guys dodger was sewn in.  What could it be and is it available somewhere?  It sure looks like it's too tough to sew to me but thought you guys might have some good info for me.  Thanks, Russell.

General Discussion / Re: What Went Wrong Here? Bimini Convertible Top
« on: November 11, 2012, 06:25:07 AM »
I've experienced wrinkles like this being caused by framework (aluminum mostly) that is out of whack.  Check your bow alignment and also check to make sure your bows have not been damaged and bent.  If they don't line up properly, they are not symmetrical and a symmetrical fabric top will not fit the frame properly.

General Discussion / Re: Which webbing for perimeter of boat cover?
« on: June 14, 2012, 06:23:37 PM »
I think we're going to forget the webbing and do what we usually do instead.  We usually make hems or facings and turn them.  That seems to be a pretty good way to do it although I have no doubt that it's faster binding the webbing in instead.

Yes Mike, I did get that link.  Thanks for helping me out with that.  We've been so busy though, that I haven't been able to work on my own boat projects!  I hate it when that happens!  :P

Hello everyone!  Things are going great up here in Maine!  I have a question.  I am duplicating a pontoon boat cover and they bound in webbing around the perimeter and installed their snaps through that.  What webbing would you suggest using for this application?  I have only been using one inch nylon webbing, mostly for bimini straps, etc.  Thanks for your help! Russell.

We had a lady stop by with her convertable BMW today that had blown out stitching everywhere.  She had been to an auto reupholsterer and was told that he could make her a new one for $1600.00.  She told me she went online and found one but when she approached him about installing it, he said he would have to charge her $800.00.  I peeked inside to see how it attached and all I can say is "You car upholstery guys (and gals) earn your money!"  I wouldn't know that first thing about how to approach a job like that.  We kindly sent her on her way.  The prices sounded fine to me.

Sorry about that.  Yes, it's a Shark Professional Fabric Steamer.  Didn't see a model number on it but the box says Shark Professional Fabric Steamer.
