    So you have Sunbrella "SeaMark"? It has a vinyl-type coating on the underside. Unless you've been mistreating it somehow, that should not be happening. Contact who you bought it from or the shop that installed it. It should be under warranty.

    It may be rubbing against something.

    Last year I replaced my 1997 original Sunbrella Seamark that was still "okay" but had pretty significant delamination. That was 22 year old stuff :) If you're seeing issues already you should quickly call whomever made the canvas for you.

    I'm curious - how do you clean it?

    A mild soap and water with a touch of white vinegar to keep mildew from showing up

    Vinegar is a mild acid. I wonder if that might have something to do with it.
    I use a touch of bleach when I clean my canvas to combat mildew.

    I’ve used AMC Canvas in Amityville for some things and they’ve always been great. Maybe they can give you an answer.
