Where can I get fitted canvas?

In the tropics it is very necessary to keep a RIB and the engine cowl covered against UV. Here is a pic of my AB which has full cover - the covers were made very cheaply in Venezuela using sunbrella (a UV resistant canvas normally made in the USA).

The boat still looks very good underneath due to the canvas protection and so I would like to find someone to replace the canvas with new. I have tried a few places - but their cost is sensationally high and there is doubt about getting the fit correct.

Does anyone know someone who makes good boat canvas at a reasonable price?

No question go to JB Marine, Bursledon. Jim does a great job on all canvas work. He will make anything you want. He has made canvas items for me for over 25yrs.
