Default Canvas

I own a sunbrella canvas top, bimini/camper on my 2500scr. Is there any way to regain its water repellency? The canvas has no rips or tears, and the seams all look great, but every time it rains and the boat is out of the covered slip the carpets get soaked. I was just over at the slip after getting her put back into the water after the stern drive painting and the carpets are soaked, AGAIN. I felt the inside of the canvas and it seemed damp. Could the rain water actually be seeping through????? I really dont want to throw down the cash to replace the entire thing. I can only imagine that wold be super pricey, especially after getting a quote for nearly $900 to replace the slant back with a full camper. Thats only half the canvas top.
Any suggestions other than dont go boating in the rain????

Thanks
Rich

yeah...don't go boating in the rain!!...BWahahaha...sorry ...couldn't resist.....there is a couple of things you can do....one of which is go to boaters world or westmarine and get some 3m water repellant....have to do it on a relatively warm dry day....the other is lift the carpets out of the cockpit and be there when it rains...that will tell you where it's coming from..might not be the canvas at all....

the other for a full up camper back for your boat..call leta's top shop in arlington wa....she can send you the bow's and canvas as well as the curtains for less than what was quoted...

Thanks. That was my thought, remove carpets and look for water.
As for the quote for the camper back.......I'll call letas.
Who is the other one in Everett???? That is where the quote came from.

I'll have to check. The one that I called originally was incredible friendly. You actually referred me, so maybe it was Leta's, I honestly cant remember. Oh well, I'll just call again. I do know that she said I needed to bring the boat up to her, if that helps figure it out....

Off to Boaters World. What else to do on a rainy Saturday than spend money?
