Canvas shops recommendations in Trinidad & Tobago

I not sure if this is the right place for this.
Can anyone recommend a canvas shop (bimini, dodger, sail covers) in Trinidad & Tobago,
I am not there but my yacht is up on the hard and I would to get some prices, so they would need to have email contact.
Thanks

We had good service a few years ago from ACE Sails and Canvas at Chaguaramas who made us a sprayhood and bimini.

Re: Canvas shops recommendations in Trinidad & Tobago

we can tell you who not to use. We had friends use Carlos and they had some pillows or seat cushions made and they were nice. So we hired him to do side curtains for us. It was a struggle to get them finished and I had to tell him I was going to file a criminal complaint for theft as I paid him for work and material but not all of it and he did nothing. There was always an excuse. He was working on our boat one day and got a call and said it was his wife and a tree fell on his dog house so he had to go home to take care of his dog. We did not see him for days even after call after call after call.
I complained to the tourist folks and Jessie and they called him I think. Nothing.

We were actually checking out as our time had expired and he was still working on the boat. and they are a piece of junk. we spent a lot of money and got crap in return. we are going to have to have them redone in Turkey.

Carlos is a rip off.
