Each of our boat manufacturers' canvas pages
have Photos of the Factory OEM T-Tops, Hard-Top, Bimini-Tops, Canvas, etc. at the
bottom of the page for verification
(Sea Hunt® Photos for example).
Please compare your boat against these photos to insure you have the
Original-Equipment (OEM) Top frame from the Factory
(some dealers, like Chatlee in NC and Ed's Marine Superstoe in VA,
install their own, after-market T-Tops).
Our Factory OEM canvas
does not fit after-market Tops!
Boston Whaler®, Sea Ray® and Grady White® do NOT allow
dealers to install their own, after-market tops on new boats,
so these are typically Factory OEM,
unless an owner installed their own top.

since we "make-to-order" (Just-In-Time = JIT)

(no need to carry inventory)
and thus our overhead is lower.
- Unfortunately, agreements with boat manufacturers prevent us from selling the current (last 2 model years)
factory-original (OEM) production canvas, frames and covers direct to the public.
