Canvas Repair Recommendations?

I have a boat cover that needs some sewing, any recommendations? Preferably around the Beaches area, but not mandatory.

Last time I needed some work I used the canvas ladies out of Beach Marine, but it looks like they have moved or closed down.

P.S. Why is it they can make Sunbrella that lasts almost forever but they can't come up with a seam thread material that lasts more than a few years? Even nylon doesn't seem to go past 5 years or so.

    No idea on where to get ya sewed up, there used to be a place called Boree Canvas on the west side of downtown, can't remember exactally where though. The last time my boat coaver had a seam come apart, I sewed it up myself with a needle and 20lb. Suffix 832, that's been a few years ago and it's still going strong...

    Quick Google search brought up their website. Good luck!

    There's a shop called Bluewater Canvas that just moved near Beach Marine and is located on 1st ave north (Jax Beach), right up from Rick's bait and tackle. I've heard good things about bluewater canvas in the past so may be worth a phone call.

    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.
