White Lake Canvas in Whitehall Michigan.Hello, I am looking for a winter storage cover for a 1985 Beneteau 325. Can anyone recommend a fabricator? Thanks
I had problems it's them too. Ordered a cover at the Chicago Strictly sail show in January. Got the cover after many calls, it it had stancion collars in the wrong place. Sent parts of it back after the winter to have it fixed. Had to check all al times to finally get it back in November that year. Broke one zipper and had a gaping hole in it all winter. Sent it back this summer and waiting for them to return it. Hopefully it will last at least one season.I had a miserable experience with "The Canvas Shop" out of Long Island. The end product was ok, but it took over a year to get it right. They were very hard to get in touch with, once they had my money, and very unsympathetic to the problems they had caused. I would not recommend them.
+1 For White Lake Canvas. Mark made my 323 cover in 2005 and it survived 10 Michigan winters. Perfect fit and finish.White Lake Canvas in Whitehall Michigan.
Marc who owns it is absolutely the best.
The Only thing is that he is so good that he's really busy and you have to get on his schedule.
First one he made for me was for Catalina 34. Used it 12 or 13 years before it wore out.
Now have one on our Hunter 38.
Thanks Mickstr, I hope that won't be necessary.Greg (Tally Ho), I winter my 322 within 100 yards of The Canvas Shop. I haven't dealt with them myself yet, but if you need me to walk in their door and ask about your cover, let me know. I'll probably go with a tarp myself this winter, my 2nd winter with the 322.
Second that with Ship Shape.Shipshape Products...talk with Jim Welisnki, the owner. They made a cover for my O'Day 302 and after two seasons in Kansas winters it looks brand new. Easier to put on and remove than the old blue tarps I was using (looks much better, too!) Jim is terrific to work with. I bought the better material and added a door (a must) and a couple of other little extras. Very quality work.
Can't recommend them enough given my experience. Here's the info:

I agree with you completely. Without specific measurements for a specific boat the fit is going to be generic and could lead to performance issues or additional effort to put it on.I don't know if it's essential but I would prefer it. And you have to think of service. It's too expensive to ship it back. And at least with the cover to my 356, it was a bear to even load into the car. It was comical to see myself with a rotator cuff injury, the the sailmaker with a bad back, try to hump this cover up the stairs to his loft. We collectively sounded like the 2,000 Year Old Man.
