    I have a 30ft boat and a heavy duty sewing machine. I'm looking for a source (preferably in the US) that sells marine grade UV boat cover material. I would like to try some of the new lighter materials vs. heavy canvas. I'm looking for a tough, light material than can provide a good 5 years or longer of service.

    Any ideas or suggestions? :idea:

    I found a good product with good performance & UV properties after searching another thread. I ordered 15 yards of WeatherMAX fabric. Very nice stuff with many color options. :)
