Default 1800 SR3 canvas question

Hi,
I'm new and have just bought an 1800 SR3 (2005). The canvas cockpit and main passenger covers seem to have shrunk. The boat had been kept in a very warm area and the seller said the canvases had "dried out" and shrunk a little, but would be ok if soaked (ie would stretch back).
Assuming this doesn't work, is there anywhere to order replacements? Happy to have them shipped from wherever.
Thanks for any advice,
- Ian.

Letas top shop has most Maxum patterns. A local canvas shop can custom make what you need and will probably fit better. With Letas you will need to install the fasteners.

If you soak it you can get it to stretch, however it will only last as long as its wet.

You're shortly in need of new canvas. I'll second a local canvas shop.
