We just had Chris Patterson, Weaver Canvas, Wilmington, NC, contruct a new bimini and full enclosure for "Steel Hers" and I've posted several pics of such. Chris did an excellent job, with many small details that make a big difference, such as the quick disconnect frame, pull tabs on the zippers, felt backing on rollup straps to prevent scratching the glass, etc. His cost is commensurate with his quality, and worth every penny! We highly recommend him for all your canvas needs, and if you have a 28TE like ours, and like how ours looks, he's already got the pattern.

Chris & Dale,

We are looking to add bimini and full enclosure to our 28TE. I am a bit of a novice on the Owner's web site. Can you point me to the pictures of yours? Thanks...

Here's a link to the posting that has more pictures. He does great work and will know exactly what you need when you mention "Steel Hers". Ain't cheap, but worth every penny in quality and all the small details. Good Luck!

Here is a photo of our cockpit top. Not cheap either, but very nice to keep much of the rain out of the cockpit as well as the sun. We may add a total enclosure this year. Top was made by Canvas Supply of Seattle.
