Hey FOA team, I have some ideas for a wash bay solution at work, and it’s likely to be in canvas or tarpaulin. I’ve emailed BODave, but I know he’s wicked busy, and I was looking for some leads or experience any one might have had with people who work in this sort of thing/industry. I guess this is some industrial sewing or something? any tips for people in Brisbane that might be worth talking to would be great, thanks
nickj has a new business called Huon Co that may be of some use…?
Evan Terra Rosa Gear might have some advice on material
Marty at Elephants & Robots might also be able to help.

thanks lads, i’ll sketch out the idea and get in touch
Look up shade cloth/car port/outdoor places. Most of that stuff is super heavy duty, the are usually custom made which means sewing and also use waterproof materials. I am guessing you need/want something pretty heavy duty.
More info would help M80 but I’m guessing you want to make a liner?
it’ll be attached to a wall, have a sub frame that folds down and needs good drainage, potentially with a splitter or something to get chunks and silt out
I’ve got a mate who’s a parachute rigger (sews all sorts of shit for skydiving) his rigging loft is just near crank star. He would be able to sew whatever you need. Give me a buzz if ya want his details
Yeah what Wookie said. I used to get all my canvass banners sewn by Capalaba Canvass… They’ll piss out what you need, they do custom boat covers and all sorts of stuff.
