I have had them work on a couple of things. Last time all I would say they do good work.

I have had two custom covers done by them, they do great work. A little on the spendy side but very nice.

I had windows replaced on my canvas last year, good to work with. Make sure you get it in soon as everyone will have the itch to get theirs done right about now as well.

Their waiting list will speak for itself. I've had two covers made by them. Both were excellent and fairly priced.

Very good work but as said it comes at a price. They have done snap on covers for a few friends and they fit very nicely. Reinforced in stress spots and engine covers if ya choose them. I wouldnt hesitate at all to have them do a cover.

I have had work done for me from them, but I also had some done by Big B's Canvas. Very happy with both, I think you'll find Big B's a better value though.

Would either of these places be willing and able to fix/replace a zippered door on my ice house that crapped out on me this winter? I suppose I should probably just call them tongue.gif thought i'd ask first. Thanks!

I know Proctor Canvas will. They did a real nice job on Poutslayers house zipper a few years back.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
