Portable cover problem


wounded minnow

Question

I have a question regarding a repair I need to make on the cover of the portable I just bought. I bought a new "Frabill XLTwin" with a bench seat aprox three weeks ago. I was told it was last year's model. I wanted this model for about four years. It has worked great for the few times I had used it. Yesterday, I was fishing at a "FishingMN gathering", and the person I was with allowed the door to touch the heater. It burned a hole in the fabric and through the zipper on the door. He felt pretty bad about it, and I was trying to hide the sickening feeling that was developing in my stomach. I think there should be a "Velcro" patch on the bottom of the door as well as on the top.(just a suggestion) I was wondering if anyone knows if solutions to this problem are available. Is it possible to obtain a replacement cover, or a replacement front piece which could be stitched onto the old cover? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Chris

Take the cover off and have a new zipper sewn in. If they can find a match to the original zipper they'll just replace the zipper on the door. While your at it have them put that Velcro patch on the door and cover. Call around and you should be able to find a shop that will do this for you.

Thanks for the suggestion. I live in Coon Rapids. Does anyone know of a shop that might be able to make this repair? I know very little about zippers,seams, or thread. Home Ec. wasn't my best subject.

I had the same thing happen to my Polor Sport pull over. I took it to Canvas Plus in Rogers and they did a great job. Since you are in coon rapids and they are just off 94, should be a quick 20 minute trip over there.

I would contact Frabill customer service at www.frabill.com explain the circumstances and see what Kellie has to say. They have been very good in helping me with any problems that I have had.
Frabill is the best!!
Good Luck

Hey Wounded Minnow, Canvas Craft in Anoka should be able to repair it for you. They are right off Hwy 10 by Diamonds Sports Bar if you know where that is.

Just ordered the new cover. My wallet is now $160.00 lighter, but now I have an "old" cover to put on when someone borrows my shack.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
