Bimini/Dodger Canvas Recommendations

I'll be in need of a new dodger within the next year. Can anyone recommend someone to work with that will cut new canvas at a decent price using my old dodger as a template?
Any bad experiences or places to steer clear of?

Re: Bimini/Dodger Canvas Recommendations

Making a new dodger using the old as a template is a crap shoot with the fit. And what are you really saving? You'd be paying someome to take the old one apart which would probably take an hour to rip all the seams ect..., why not pay them to template a new one and be assured that you get a nice tight fit?
