Once you’ve narrowed down the choice of canvas try Kayospruce in Fareham. They are a trade supplier but do sell to the public, they carry a huge range of canvas and other nautical fabrics. They have always been very helpful when I have called in.
Thanks Peter, I now have the material and will be starting the procedure as soon as weather permits. The whole business is going to be quite a challenge but will show the results here when complete, that is if I can manage the PC picture sending process. Regards, Pete W7059
