    does anyone know of a reputable canvas/isinglass company in the Orange Beach, AL area? I am having a really hard time finding anyone who will give me a quote to replace all of my enclosures. Thanks in advance.

    Great Lakes Boat Top Company is online and makes replacement tops. You can email them on their website and get a quote. I got an email from them recently that was advertising 20% off. The company makes tops for lots of boats and will be a little on the pricey side, but they will give you a idea of what prices you are looking at.

    It does not appear GLBT offers canvas for the 460DA.

    For my 270DA they are 1/3 the cost of a custom job. Do not expect that much differenc for a larger boat.

    When we were in Fairhope, I used Bill’s Canvas and marine upholstery to replace a single strataglass panel on our bridge that I had cracked. If I remember right, his shop was in Mobile, but he lived over near Fairhope. He came by after work and picked it up and dropped it off the next night on his way home. Great job, couldn’t tell it was replaced, $200.
    I know one piece of glass is hardly a foundation for a recommendation, but it’s a start.

    If the 460DA was from the Palm Coast plant it may have been individually patterned with the patterns placed on the boat (this is from an OEM note on 1999 - 2002 boats). PM, email me or call me after the holiday weekend and I will be happy to look into it further for you. As @MonacoMike stated - do not expect the big discounts from custom - but if they are done by the OEM they will be just like they were delivered with the boat new and delivered in a timely basis - you will still need to install the fasteners (snaps, shock cords, etc). On these larger boats the OEMs give also give us flexibility in modifications.
