Replacement Spray Hoods.
If you would like your spray hood replaced using the existing frames then we need to visit your boat 2-3 times. Unfortunately we can’t just work from your old cover as it may have become stretched and distorted over time.
If in serviceable condition we can re user your existing fittings, or supply new ones; these are usually lift the dot studs, press studs, turnbuckles, hooks, lacing buttons, or a combination of any of these.
Our replacement spray hoods are made from acrylic canvas with a PU coating for great water resistance. This keeps the hoods breathable, whilst still providing excellent stability in sunlight.

How we work.
On our first visit to your boat we make and fit a plastic template over your existing steel frame. This ensures your new spray hood is going to be a perfect fit.
Then back at our loft in Dell Quay we’ll make the spray hood, then arrange with you to have it fitted.
If your spray hood needs some final adjustments then we may need to arrange another fitting, but this is pretty rare!

We can button cushions but preferably not as they fail and trap dust etc, but great if you’re aiming for a traditional look.
A contemporary alternative is to emphasise shape in a cushion by creating a knee roll using an internal flap.
Not forgetting the underlining, a lightweight cost effective slightly breathable fabric which cuts down condensation.
Oh and we use velcro to close the cushion covers, it doesn’t mind being unused for months on end whereas zips do.
We are increasingly being asked to provide screens / curtains/ shades for garden structures.
