A couple of my sprayhood 'windows' are now a bit worse for wear and need replacing and some of the general stitching needs renewing.

The sprayhood is fitted to a 1990 Bavaria 300.

Can anyone recommend someone in the Brighton area who takes care of such things. Or for that matter anyone between Brighton and the West Malling (Maidstone) area. I am happy to deliver / collect the sprayhood whenever and wherever necessary and would naturally prefer to keep costs to the minimum.

I'm sure it will be suggested that I attempt the job myself but being new to boating and all such things (and certainly not handy with a needle and thread) I prefer to leave it to someone more able.

Many thanks as always for any helpful suggestions. Much appreciated.

Is Faversham too far?

If not, then Wilkinson Sails.

I can also reccomend Nickys. Mine was completely re-stitched with new windows the same day :-)

Here's anothet one for Nicky's. My sprayhood disintegrated in July due to uv light rotting the stitching. It was restitched in 24 hrs at a cost of 35.00. Excellent service.

April at South Coast Hoods 07973 794433 has done some great work for me at Brighton at good prices.

Second that, Cindy at Wilkinson sails sorted mine out earlier this year.

Well pleased.

Thanks to your useful suggestions I have sorted my sprayhood.

I popped it into Nickys Canvasworks in Brighton Marina and was pleasantly surprised with the result. Three new windows, all stitching repaired, general all round tidy-up, wash and reproof - 167 !!!. It will take a few days but I'm in no hurry. Good price and excellent service

Thanks again
