Spray hood and Bimini covers

Hopefully I have posted in the right place.....

I'm in the process of purchasing a 2009 Bavaria 47 cruiser owners edition.

The yacht is currently located in Pisa, Italy and will need some cosmetic work to get it ship shape and happy to cruise again.

One of the tasks will be to either replace or repair the spray hood and bimini. I'm also looking for some other canvas work for covers.

Has anybody had any work carried out around the North west coast that they are able to recommend a canvas cover specialist?

Thank you in advance

Re: Spray hood and Bimini covers

I'm a big fan of DIY hard dodgers. As you can build them for less; money, & weight than a canvas one. With more perks to boot. Such as using a deck hatch for your forward window, but setting up the hinges with Fas-Pins, instead of regular fixed pins. Thus, you can entirely remove it whenever the mood strikes.

If you do a search on them, you'll come up with lots of info.
