What is the Best Color & best brand of boat canvas? Sunbrella? Top Gun? What is your suggestion?
I'm about to buy my own walking foot sewing machine because the other one we have is not quite good enough for doing boat canvas. I've redone boat seats, bimini tops, and other smaller projects.
I'm planning on redoing my eisenglass with all canvas to make it easier and quicker to put up and take down and also so that I'm not continually damaging the plastic eisenglass windows that always seem to yellow and get all disgusting. Plus I can't wait to be able to just fold up the sections and put them under a seat or something. I do also still plan on making a eisenglass set as well as a total screen set. That way I can have all the pieces for either total privacy, bug protection but still wind and air, or protection from the rain while still being able to see or whatever. So I'm about to buy, what kind should I get?
Yes, I know, most people who do this screw it up, I plan on it. For what the material cost is I can screw it up many times and still save a ton over having someone else do it. Plus what I'm looking forward to is the pride of knowing that I did it myself.
So what do you think?
