We contacted Josh at Hayden Island Canvas to do the remake of canvas covers for us. Josh has done canvas, and dodger builds on three of the last four boats I have owned. After work tonight we decided to drive over to see how Josh was coming along.

Dodger and Bimini Canvas Ready for installation tomorrow
Josh has great attention to detail. Here's a close up of the dodger cover for example, notice the stitching, the leather scuff guards for the lines, the trim work, all very nicely done.

Of course Josh never misses the chance to sign his artwork.
Tomorrow the Bimini and the dodger will be installed, while the shop works on the new sail bags...
After leaving the shop it was nice to stroll over to the boat to check on it, and we were surprised to the wheel cover had already been done.
Opening day is coming here in Portland and we have the goal of having the CarolMarie, ready and bristol for the opening day sail.
