If its time to replace the canvas on your canopy due to old age or wear and tear then you’re sure to find what you need here. Midwest Marine Supplies offers aftermarket compatible canvas tops for your lifts at a fraction the price of OEM tops. We offer 5 different fabric types, each one is great, but each is a little different as well. Below you will find a breakdown of each one:
Shelter-Rite SLT13- LIGHTWEIGHT Shelter-Rite SLT13 is identical to the Shelter-Rite 18 oz. fabric except the underside coating was reformulated and reduced to 1.5 ounces. We are able to reduce the weight of the fabric while maintaining the same tear resistance, ultra violet and anti-fungal protection, and water tightness as SR18. All cross seams are heated welded (not sewn). SLT13 will not stretch, shrink or rot.
An average cover weighs 47 pounds.
Shelter-Rite SR18- The foundation of the 18 oz. vinyl coated fabric is a 5 ounce high-tenacity (strongest) polyester yarn. The top side and underside have 6.5 ounces of coating that provides superior tear resistance, ultra violet and anti-fungal protection, and water tightness. All seams are heat welded (not sewn). Shelter-Rite 18 oz. will not stretch, shrink or rot.
An average cover weighs 65 lbs.
Harbor-Time- It is made from hybrid-coated polyester and is ideal for harsh marine environments because it offers exceptional resistance to abrasion while maintaining superior strength and visual appeal. Harbor-Time is a highly water repellent cloth that is resistant to both mildew and ultraviolet light making it a durable choice for boat lift marine applications. Harbor-Time’s seams are also heat welding.
An average cover weighs 42 lbs.
Hydrofend- Hydrofend is made from solution-dyed polyester with a water resistant back coating. This marine fabric is engineered for superior hydros and breathability. The coating on the underside prevents abrasion while the matte, woven top gives an attractive, outward-facing look. This easy to put on/off the lift, light weight 8oz water-resistant material is a great option for your boat lift canopy. Hydrofend has a 5 year warranty.
RecWater- RecWater is made of solution-dyed acrylic fibers with PVC coating on one side. The PVC coating is color matched with the acrylic, thus, combining the elegance of the acrylic fabric with PVC for 100% waterproof performance. The 19oz waterproof fabric makes RecWater a suitable option for your boat lift cover in extreme weather conditions. RecWater has a 5 year warranty.
