General Discussion / Re: Price Estimate?

This is very helpful! I have been working too cheap :(

Just To Clarify, I have only done three enclosures and all of them had a good bimini top, but I had estimated them too low and lost my shirt. The hours I thought it would take versus actual hours in the job was way WAY different. I did not mean to imply that anyone here was charging too much.

Nice work Mike. Is the top held on with zippered pockets?

Another tip that I learned is to use a couple of eight foot 2x4's that I have mounted deck hinges and hardware to. Then I can take the frame off the boat, mock it up on the 2x4's and pattern the top in my basement or garage. No wind to deal with and everything is pretty much at eye level.

You shouldn't have any problems with a YKK #10 auto locking zipper. I usually split the pocket in the middle and use two zippers rather than one long one. Mr. Mike would be the expert on this. :)

Heavy rain, wind and thunderstorms here in St. Louis area yesterday and today. Other than stitching together a couple of cover blanks I am pretty much shut down. :(

Thanks gentlemen, these are both good tips. I made the mistake of using a sewing awl once but with the gigantic needle and string like thread it came with. I am going to put together a little hand stitching kit for future fixes.

Every once in a while I will install a completed cover only to find a small area where the binding was not quite in place when stitched down or some other small mistake. Does anyone ever hand stitch these goof ups rather than removing the cover and taking it back to the machine? If so, what would be the recommended method, sewing awl or ???

Okay, I have not made a cover for a boat with T top yet but they are starting to become more popular here so it's a matter of time.

Nice cover Mike. Is that a two piece cover that zips together in the middle?

Sounds like it may be time to raise prices.

« on: February 14, 2014, 01:18:12 AM »
I think that these things are usually carpeted instead of covered in vinyl the lower six inches or so to protect from shoe scuffs and to keep the bottom edge from wearing through. This I learned after covering one in vinyl that originally had carpet, in my case is turned out to be a mistake.

Glad to hear so many folks are busy! I too have a two or three week back log on boat covers right now. However if the weather would warm up I could get caught up much faster.

Oh and by the way, we are not supposed to call them "Illegals" anymore, it may hurt their feelings.
