it was Sunbrella Plus fabric, I used the old cover to pattern, measured old one and the "tricky" spots I cut the old cover and used it to pattern...basically just copy and paste...err sew....

looks decent. In the future don't use sunbrella, use aqualon, harborside, topgun. On vent ports, no need to bind edge of hole, use reinforcing patch thou. Also snapping it down would probably work better than snaps, and quicker.

Most people want sunbrella even if i used s non ravling fabric id stil bind the edges for astetics
