    We recently purchased our first boat, a 1995 Sea Ray 230 Sundancer, and we're looking to add a full camper enclosure. Unfortunately, our boat was mfg in Arizona and I believe that the one canvas shop that still has those templates is Harvard Marine in New York. Great Lakes Boat Tops and RNR Marine can provide me with the tops and frames for the TN built Sundancer but they can't guarantee the fit.
    So I was wondering if anyone has any experience fitting a canvas (and/or frames) from a Tennessee made Sea Ray to one made in Arizona or if anyone has any experience with Harvard Marine.
    Thanks
    Billy

    Billy, why not go with a local canvas shop and have them make one to your specifications? That way there would be no question about it fitting.

    I just sent some requests out to a few local shops to see what they say.
    I'm trying to see what all of my options are before we decide.

    Because Great Lakes Boat Top will get me a completely new canvas set for about $1650 when it's on sale in the winter.

    That is a huge difference in price from custom made.
