Default Rebuilt my side curtains on my top...

Friday morning I got up and ran to the boat..pulled the 2 side curtains that had split or was faded/smokey...yep..they were going and going fast....so...took them up to Leta's top shop in arlington wa...she cost me 60 bucks for 3 panels to get repaired.....they stitched in new eisenglass and cut out the old stuff..repaired a torn zipper....replaced the straps that they used for rolling the back panel up out of the way...and then called me sat. morning...I raced up there and took them back to the boat to get on the boat...they look fabulous...

they did a great job and everything looks almost new again...

next spring I'm going to replace the whole top .....it's getting old and I don't think it won't last another full up season...

Default Eisenglass care

Hi Seapuppy
I was wondering if there is a favorite product used buy our Maxum crew to clean and protect our new eisenglass?
Thanks
Paul

Hi SL
there are 2 schools of thought...one to use nothing but soap and water, while using a soft towel to clean the isenglass....
there there is some 3m isenglass cleaner that works pretty well..but once the glass is fogged...nothing can be done but to replace them...it's easy to zip one out and stitch a new one in it's place....

then the one that leta's recommends..it's cheap..it's easy and most people don't even think it will work...use pledge...not the kind with lemon wax...just plain pledge....it cleans and keeps the isenglass lubricated....it is a bit of work since you have to spread it on and then wipe it off....but once you do it..it looks good....

Thanks SP
I have been using pledge on other plastics over the years but was not sure on the eisenglass products. The glass on our last boat was ten years old and we never put anything on it and it still looked great. So maybe I will just keep up with the way I was doing it.

WOW - I wish I had found a deal like that!!! I just paid Maxum nearly $400 for replacement panels on the front section (the main section in the front with three eisenglass panels). My front side panels are a bit rough, do you think the shop would consider doing mine? I would obviously need to ship them up and have them shipped back, but that is a GREAT price!

Thanks. I did contact a local canvas shop and they gave me quite a run-around... I would prefer to send them to her considering you experience. I found the website and sent a message.

Thanks

They already replied and said it was fine, just send them on up. I am not sure I am ready to remove the side panels yet though, I might wait until summer to give them up for a few weeks. Thanks again for the lead.

Just an FYI - I recently got a quote for $400 to replace my two side (front) isenglass panels, replace back screens and velcro, restsitch the entire top, and waterproof. Sounds like Leta's may have been cheaper, but shipping probably would have eaten the difference.
