MAINTENANCE IS CRUCIAL. (click here)
Of course, any repair to your tarpaulin, hood, boat cover, splash cover, skirt, etc. is possible.
renovation boat cover
Complete renovation of a boat cover. All 5 windows had “decayed” and were almost completely gone. Because the stitching in the roof seams had disappeared and are therefore only holes, you will get leakage. The owner had overcome this by sticking DUCKTAPE to the inside of the hood along all roof seams! After inspecting the material, which was still in very good condition, I advised the customer to stitch the hood completely through, new windows and a good cleaning at (in this case) Red Gull / Belser. The customer followed this advice. Below the result before and after all actions. The hood seems completely new!

Furthermore, (almost) anything you can think of can be made! You can also contact us for your pillows.
The sprayhood was completely apart because, among other things, the seams were not stitched again in time, so the wind has all the grip on it, which results in the following. Major tear and tears. In order to “camouflage” the large crack, new windows have been drawn out and inserted in the sides, so that the repair of that large crack is hardly noticeable. Because the seams had also come completely loose due to wear and tear of the yarns, these were re-taped where possible and stitched back together as much as possible in / on the old stitching holes. The accompanying harbor sail (= the sloping rear sail) has also been newly taped and stitched. This way, this hood can last for a number of years. Is it always more affordable than a completely new one, and if the old one still functions properly, you don’t need a new one, do you?
