Ameritex is now taking orders. You need the part numbers off the canvas to get a quote. Hopefully this will change, but them starting to take orders is good news. Good luck!

    I hope so. I have zero part numbers on my top.

    I wonder what the turn around time would be?

    RNR has updated their site and is offering the canvas.  I'm sure they can get part numbers or you can order from them directly.

    I would use them for part numbers, but I would order from @coverguy. RnR inflates their prices.

    So, for all you 2008 400 owners, I could use some help @SimcoeRinker400    @pearson57842   

    I'm looking to buy the entire AFT canvas (don't need HT connections).  The only piece I can read is my door, which has 106669100 S-RK 390/400 HT AFT CR

    Looking at RNR site, It only states AFt curtain and AFT curtain inserts.  So, do I only need:
    109466100 - S-RK 400 H.T. AFT CURTAIN White Aqualon (is this the door, big screen part, and aft side curtains?)
    106668100 - S-RK 390/400 H.T.AFT INSERTS White Aqualon (this is the two small little pieces that are the furthest forward?)

    I've looked at my emails over the past 6 years, getting quotes from 3 different people and none of them listed my door separately and seemed to only have these two part numbers for the AFT.

    Example, this is what I got from Darren a few years ago (I believe connection pieces are the ones that go into hardtop and have zippers to connect the isenglass., Front is just that, side is what I believe front side, screen is center front option, the rest has gotta be the entire aft?

    106663100  -  S-RK 390/400 H.T.FRONT CONNECTION W                Retail:  $398.73            Your Cost: $348
    109279100  -  S-RK 400 HT CONN WHT AQULN                                 Retail:  $881.90            Your Cost: $778
    109280100  -  S-RK 400 HT SIDE CRTN WHT AQULN                          Retail:  $492.70            Your Cost: $428
    109281100  -  S-RK 400 HT SCREEN INSERT WHT AQULN                 Retail:  $292.73            Your Cost: $248
    106667100  -  S-RK 390/400 H.T.AFT HT CONNECTION                     Retail:  $346.26            Your Cost: $298
    106668100  -  S-RK 390/400 H.T.AFT INSERTS WHTAQL                    Retail:  $276.02            Your Cost: $232
    109466100  -  S-RK 400 H.T. AFT CURTAIN WHT AQLN                      Retail: $1,629.26          Your Cost: $1398
     
    Retail Cost: $4,317.60, plus shipping

    Your Cost: $3,730.00, plus shipping

    Wish I had bought all this back then for these prices for the entire thing!

    I don't have the factory canvas.  Someone replaced it before I got the boat so do not have the part numbers.  Are you one replacing the back and its $3,730.00  ??

    No, that price was for all of it.  I believe the back was ~$1600 here. I am also working on a quote from my local canvas shop, which if comparable then I can have some changes done.  Any changes done to yours that you recommend?

    I don't know the 400 at all but one change I would make to my canvas is to allow the rear access panel that covers the walkway to be removed completely (not just rolled up).  I find rolling is a pain; I would rather just remove and stow.

    On my custom canvas it can be rolled up or removed

    Same with the 400.  I agree, I would not want to only be able to roll the door up.

    Did you order it directly from Ameritex or did you go thru Darren?

    Ray you all good to install the New snaps? Comes with the snaps but not the tools to install.

    My 400 canvas has a removable bottom of the door and the full door can be removed.  My setup you can leave it attached and open the rear door and Canvas opens with it.  You can sort of see it in this last picture of the year with the second in command.

    I like that idea of the removable bottom piece.  Does it attach to top of door when the bottom isn’t on?  Either way, I like the idea of that bottom not being in the way at times.

    This is the only picture I can find of the boat all closed up from the back.  So the upper part buttons to the door and the bottom part zips to the upper part of the canvas door at the upper bungee pull things. The second picture shows the upper part buttoned to the rear door. Then you close the whole backup as usual.  Mind my rear seat it's being redone right now.  :)

    Who did you use to redo your seat @SimcoeRinker400 ? I have some upholstery work I would love to get done.

    My rear seat is out getting redone as well.  Too much stepping on it to zip the rear canvas.

    I found pictures of two old tags. One is for my cockpit cover and the other is for my aft curtain. At least it’s a start.

    Well, I ordered my canvas from a local shop.  I was picking up my newly redone rear cushion and was happy enough to get a quote on the rear canvas (took in my old in to make sure they knew).  With taxes it is just under $2k using sunbrella and an upgraded isenglass and upgraded zippers.  I may have them add pieces to just big back and door to allow me to roll it up without removing from hardtop.
     The quote from Darren almost three years ago for same pieces, without shipping was $1900, so I think I did ok today.

    I did well on  my 270- with two Bimini tops I probably have more canvas than some of the larger boats- got it all done for 2500 bucks so I was pleased. Recently re did the carpet and all the seating (copy cat upholstery) for 4500 and I was pleased with that-
