How do you go about finding the best people to fabricate your boat covers?

In truth, it takes a bit of work. This should help you.

Some background to the trade

A Marine Trimmer is someone who can make all kinds of covers for your boat, from a simple bimini, to a full clear enclosure. They can upholster the interior and re-line your cabin.
