Try canvasbychris(at)gmail.com

I have just commissioned him to re-do all the interior and exterior cushions on my sailboat/ He also gave me a good quote on a full enclosure for my Bimini.

If you would like his number drop me a PM and I will send it off to you.

My boats in Jupiter btw so he services WPB all the way to Lauderdale I believe with his team.

Best Regards

Redunc

Just an update to this

I retract my recommendation - unfortunately it seems this is another 'outfit' that don't deliver anything but failed promises.

I recommended them to a friend and its come back to bite me - the owner chris took the money but failed to deliver 100% - last time I recommend anyone again! He will not answer calls and my friend is with a poor t-top and no bag which was paid for.

Avoid Chris Morin / Canvas by chris

Canvas Designers is in West Palm Beach. They do very good work. We use them regularly. They do EZ2CY and canvas and fine upholstery as well as a full range of metal work.

In Fort Pierce/ Stuart the only choice is Hank Mills at Reels canvas. His quality is so good that he really needs to doing corporate Jet interiors. Great work and fair prices. PM me for the number

Re: South Florida Canvas Referral Needed

I got burned by Chris Morin. His company is Canvas by Chris and he works in south Florida. I paid him in full to make me a bimini top, helm cover and re-cover two helm chairs. He took my helm chairs and won't even return them! In fact he advertises on craigslist and has a pic of one of my chairs to showcase his work!! I paid him more than $1400.00 and have received nothing but excuses. This guy is bad news and I wish I had read the alert on this forum before I hired him. You are better off getting sunburned because you don't have a bimini top than getting burned by this individual. http://www.co.palm-beach.fl.us/pubsa...rfProductSeq=0

Find a local Amish crafter, May take him 3 months, but it will be done well.
