I need to replace the cockpit covers on my Birchwood 25 - current ones are made canvas which I like - see pic

So its one back and two side pieces with clear panes under canvas flaps. Any recommendations /ideas about how much this is likely to cost?

Speaking to a forumite the other week end he was about to pay £900 for a complete cover for a 2651 Bayliner. Your boat cover looks to be about 1/3 of that size, so id imagine £3-400.

I suspect it won't be very much different in cost from a large one. The material costs are probably about 20% of the total - the hours of work will be about the same regardless of size, within reason.

Had similar done on My previous boat.
£500 a good job though.
From the piccie they don't look too bad
Boat looks good for an Old Un ,by the way, fair play!

Thanks guys - thought it may be around that price- seems crazy money for a few sheets of canvas lol. The old girl is in pretty good nick for 29 years old but that pic was the day we had her surveyed to buy her couple of years ago so the covers have suffered a bit now. Later pic here from a week or so ago after 4 days with compound and autoglym lol
