    I need canvas for a 1988 390 EC. I recently inherited the boat and there are no canvases on board.
    Does anyone have any ideas where I can find a template. All the custom canvas places I have contacted said they need a template to get me a quote. I called SeaRay and they have no canvas templates earlier than 1993. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    You are going to need to find a more professional canvas shop that does custom enclosures. The 390EC with standard canvas isn't a complicated enclosure to make, but it has to be fitted to the arch and windshield because the snaps were installed at the dealer before delivery, not at the factory. Therefore, every canvas set is different. It helps if you have the stainless bows and supports, but if you don't, a good canvas shop can make what you need.

    You might also post the actual location of the boat. A number of us boat in Florida and have relationships with canvas makers, so this could be as simple as giving you a phone number.

    I have canvas material from that era for sale if you need to match.

    There are some vendors that sell specific covers based on the original patterns from Sea Ray. But my suggestion would be to shop around for a custom canvas shop with a good reputation. I suggest you take the time to actually see samples of their work. Also ask how long they guarantee their work, especially the thread.
