Finally...the new canvas

Ko Barrett: warm and still
After an eight month saga with Quantum Sails canvas folks in Annapolis, I have finally taken delivery of my new dodger, bimini and connector. I had originally commissioned a full enclosure, but the panels they delivered where poorly designed with far too much glass and not enough canvas to meet my requirements. We went back and forth about possible fixes but I could not be assured they would deliver the look I wanted, their canvas fabricator left to start his own company, and the newly proposed delivery date (June!) was unacceptable. Eventually I suggested I just take the parts I wanted and be done with it.
I would not recommend working with them in the future. Charlie was particularly difficult to deal with and often completely wrong. No sense of customer service. However, I am pleased with the quality of what I have, though I wish the long white stripe at the rear of the dodger had been removed as requested.
