Hi Dave,

I got a 3-piece mast-up cover a couple of years ago from The Canvas Store, in upstate NY. Someone on the list had recommended this shop. I found them to be utterly incompetent and unresponsive. Having provided them with all kinds of measurements and photos (and advanced payment), the cover they sent me after several months would not fit the boat (shrouds, stanchions, etc) even approximately. All 3 pieces were way off. I returned the cover, and weeks later they sent a patched up version that was still a poor fit but that could be installed. I decided to keep it as I couldn’t afford spending more time on this back and forth - but I wish I had had the cover made elsewhere. 

Unfortunately I don’t know of any alternatives. Perhaps someone else in the list does.

Best regards
