Headed east this morning down 74 dragging the skiff to go flounder fishing and the t-top canvas tore loose. Can anyone suggest a shop that might could make us another one between Wilmington and Harkers? Towards Wilmington today, we'll be down east later this afternoon. Short notice I know but we didn't plan for it to let loose! Thanks for any help.

You can try Gore Marine. They are outside of Wilmington on 421 right near the 140 By Pass. Not sure how quick they could do it but they re did my canvas this spring and it turned out great.

tie your cover back on as best you can and go fishing, very doubtful anybody will do you a top in one day.

We've found a guy in Harkers that can do it Monday, same day service supposedly. Til then it'll be duct tape and zip ties. Thanks for the replies. :wtg:

Some ttop manufacturers carry stock. You might see if there is a tag on it and call them.

That was my first thought but we had a guy in Florida fab up the ttop to our custom dimensions. He'd have to make us one and next day air it to down east. That would cost more than the canvas. We found a guy in cape Carteret that's making it for us this afternoon. $275. I didn't think that was too bad for same day service. Got lucky.
Thanks for the suggestions guys.
