Dingy Chaps

I have a new inflatable raft made of PVC.. I need a set of chaps for it. Any suggestions on were I can find them. The company that makes the raft doesn't have any. And I don't have a sewing machine to make my own. I am currently using 303 but hoping to get some chaps. Any suggestions??

Re: Dingy Chaps

If you can make a mock up with some cheap cloth, you can buy Sunbrella (or similar) and have them made by any local shop that does sofas and car seats. Also, buy gortex thread and ask them to use your thread for the stitching. I have all my canvass made locally in the small town where I live by a local upholsterer at a tiny fraction of the price I'd pay at a "marine" place.

Any canvas shop that does Dodgers, biminis, etc can make these.
