Sun Pads

Postby Wayne162 » February 16th, 2016, 5:41 pm

Does anyone know if Carver still supplies sun pads for the fore deck of the 405? I tried asking through their site, but the messages don't seem to go through. I have snap's on the deck from the previous owner but no pads. Carver listed the part number as #A0017115. My concern is to have any new pad made to fit the existing snap configuration. If Carver no longer supplies the item, any recommendations are welcomed for a supplier. I have a shop in NJ that reconditioned my isinglass and canvas', did a good job so I may check with them if no luck. Thanks

When I bought a new pad for my 4207, the pad came with a bag of snaps. You have to install the snaps youself to match what is there. I see no manufacturing way to put them in the same place on each boat.
I suggest you buy the big c-clamp type snap tool. The pliers type are lousy.
It is not hard job at all to install the snaps once you have the correct tools.
Thanks

Carver should be able to tell you their supplier for that part number and the manufacturer may still have the patterns for making one. Having said that, anybody that does marine canvas work should be able to make sun pads for you, and match up where the domes currently are on the deck. Have you tried calling Carver direct or a local dealer?

Thanks Waybomb and Viper, I wasn't sure if the boat was originally delivered with the pads or added later. I will look into the tool for the snaps. Also I tried to contact Carver Via email. I will try again with a call. Thanks

I think I paid somewhere around 150 bucks for the snap tool and the n another 25 or so for the hole puncher, and then I had to buy various dies.

If you do get a pad and don't want to spend the money on tooling, drop me a line. You pay shipping both ways and you can borrow them.
Thanks

Spoke with Carver today and they were very helpful, I have attached the response for the sun pads.

We make the sunpads in house, typically takes 2 weeks to make them. You can order direct from us for the sunpads with a Visa or Mastercard.

Not to slam carver, but, yikes!
Find a good local shop and spend the left over 500 bucks on good scotch and cigars!
Thanks

I'm with you Waybomb. Thought it was a little high end myself. Going to look around the Charleston SC area for that custom shop, I know where the cocktails and cigars are!

I agree. Having said that, one must compare apples to apples. I find that after market canvas and upholstery fabricators while cheaper, don't usually put out the same product for the money as that supplied by the OEM, and those that do are also just as pricey, I've dealt with several. I took a survey at the boat show of pricing for canvas work while comparing some of the sample work on display and I can tell you there was a vast difference in the builds and the prices that went with them. Upholstery can be especially challenging to compare as one can't tell the quality of the material used under the vinyl. Is it just a brick of foam or layers of different material as you'd find in a better quality unit? Not to mention that not all vinyl is created equal.

Everybody has their tolerance level for quality which is usually dictated by their pocket book. Different quality and therefore price points are good to have though so we can all enjoy our toys.

Okay, that's my plug for Carver ;-)
