same here with the foam-backed vinyl. And also the 'wooly' fabric used on the walls.

I just bought a 1994 320 Voyager that needs a lot of attention: carpet, appliances drapes and sofa(bed) covers, Bimini covers, enclosures, etc.
Is anyone knows a place around Vancouver-BC that can be contacted?
Please and Thank you!

I think you will need to get the carpet, blinds/drapes, and Bimini custom made. I am in Seattle and have a good canvas guy in the San Juan Islands, but that won't help with the boarder closed. I am sure you can ask around in your marina. I'm sure there are people in Vancouver you could get. They will take off the one you have and make a pattern.

When you say carpet, are you talking about the carpet inside to boat, or the exterior carpets on your bridge, cockpit etc.? Interior you will have to find an installer who is willing to do it.... not super easy if people are busy. Exterior I struck out and ended up making a pattern, buying carpet, cutting it, and taking it to a carpet store to have the edging put on. You can buy a snap tool on Amazon to put the snaps in it when it is done. Sorry not what you were looking for I am sure, but that was my experience with my 2000 396.

Welcome aboard and congrats on the new to you 320. I agree with Russ, the soft goods you mentioned will require custom fabrication through local providers. The carpet installation can be done by an installer for permanent wall to wall areas and patterned by yourself for other areas where you want to be able to remove it for cleaning, etc. If by appliances you mean things like the refrigerator, icemaker, hot water heater, stove, etc., any marine or RV retailer should be able to get those for you fairly quickly as there are a couple of large marine distributors in BC.
