Time to replace your boat canvas?

Only AmeritexDirect boat tops and canvas covers will fit like the original marine canvas that came with your boat. That’s because if your boat canvas has an Ameritex or Taylor Made tag, then we made your boat top and boat enclosures back when your vessel was brand new, and we can remake them again for you now. All you need to do is submit the Request A Quote form to get started.

Taylor Made and Ameritex Laser Engraved Tags

Taylor Made & Ameritex Laser-Engraved Tags

For roughly the last decade, we have been sewing laser-engraved, rubber tags into all of our boat canvas parts. These tags are meant to be permanent. If your boat canvas has one of these tags (as pictured) branded either Taylor Made or Ameritex, it contains your original part number (P/N) and date of manufacturing (DT). That is all the info we need to remanufacture the exact same boat fabric parts that originally came with your boat.

NOTE: If your boat canvas does not have one of these tags, we are unable to recreate your canvas. Without a part number, we have no way to tell which of the thousands of canvas patterns in our system fit your boat.
