    My 95 330 dancer was manufactured at palm coast Florida facility, after contacting great lakes about replacement canvas I was informed that the facility made changes to canvas after great lakes supplied original canvas. Anyone have any experience with ordering replacement from great lakes for boat manufactured at palm coast? Greatlakes only will sell it as nonreturnable item because of this.

    Yes, unfortunately these Palm Coast boats (SERP) were made internally by Sea Ray. Since GLBT does not have the templates used they are unable to reproduce the covers along with providing a guaranteed fit.

    The only thing I could possible suggest is that we get the framing install instructions for the other 330 models and you can compare mount points. Beyond that there is no other info available.

    If the mount points line up you may be able will to take a chance or deal with it like we have with some Arizona built boats (similar but different problem). The best suggestions there were to order an entire canvas set including framing and install if like new. Depending on how much of the canvas you want to replace this may be an option or you would need to have a local canvas shop template and fabricate for your setup (a lot of this would be based on a cost-risk decision).

    Of course if you could find another 330 locally that had GLBT canvas that would be able to loan you theirs then you could verify before ordering.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thank you for the quick response and information. These boats are different from other 330s unfortunately. Lack of hull windows in bow must be palm coast also. Thanks again for the information

    I'd find a local canvas shop that other skippers have used and have had good luck with.
