Finished my first full pontoon cover and got it installed today....I was pretty happy with the fit, but more importantly, the customer was happy with it

it links to album so you can see other angles as well...let me know what ya think of my rookie job!


Looks good and the  ustomer was happy   That the most important thing. What fabric was that looks like a coated popester
Like odesy3  or surlast. 
Did younpattern the. Over in the water min e woking are with fhe e.shaped dock. Did younuse the fabric to pattern or plastic ect.  ?

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
