  • Where online can I get a full enclosure for my boat (pics)

    I'm looking for a full bimini top+enclosure for my 1969 slickcraft ss170v. I haven't been able to find anything online for my specific boat.

    Does anyone know of a company that makes these enclosures to spec? For example if I provide the dimensions then they'd sell the materials, poles and mounting hardware.

    I'm looking for something like this in the pics below. This is on a bayliner 192 and my boat is a similar shape only 2 feet smaller.

    I dunno, but I'll be watching this thread. I'd love something like that for my bowrider. Awesome visibility and weather protection...could have used it for the festival of fire in Toronto last year. Drizzled all night...the bimini helped, but could have used some more protection.

      best bet is to call around the lower mainland to upolstery shops/boat top shops, they can make you the top, plus the frame.
      home is where we drop anchor

        try right here at i boats. they are great ...ship quick and are really good to deal with.

        if you need custom... royal city bedding in vancouver....(actually new west) they primarily do seats,,,,but im sure they will do that....there are tons of shops that can handle that...

        btw.....that looks like sidney? i boater magster is there as well

            Try a shop that deals in awnings for homes and business.
            This is a great link to boat specifications http://boatspecs.iboats.com/
            Please, shop iboats first!!

              Thanks for the suggestions guys, I did take a look at the iboats store but could only find the bimini tops, not a complete enclosure.

              I'd think there would be kits available with adjustable poles and straps that could fit say a 16.5 to 17.5 ft runabout.

              Those pics are at my marina here in Vancouver.

                I really doubt you will be able to mail order this..... you would need to make patterns and if you could do that you could make your own top... Your best bet is to have someone come do it to your specifications on your boat

                  if that is in your marina leave a note on it, have the guy contact you.
                  maybe you could score the the name of the people that did it , or maybe the measurements to take to a top shop.
                  also take the pictures with you so they have an idea what you want.

                      Here's a link to a google search for boat covers in Vancouver BC: http://www.google.com/search?q=vanco...ers&hl=en&sa=2

                      If you take it in to someone they'll take care of all the attachment points as well and have penty of ideas on different designs and materials.

                      I had a complete cover built locally and they also replaced snaps and added attachments where necessary. Took the boat in to them and they had it done in 5 days. Mine is a two piece top with plenty of zipout windows in the front and a removeable solid rear section.

                        Hey pirate, how many feet is your boat and how much did the custom enclosure cost if you dont mind?

                        Would it be reasonable for me to assume the price for an enclosure like the one in my pics would be under 1000$?

                        I've got a list of local shops now but can't get any details until Tuesday because of the easter holiday.

                            depends GREATLY on location and who does it... somewhere in the 1500 to 2500 range would be my guess
