You can see my Genco canvas here:

There was some pain involved in dealing with them at such a distance,
but they were 50% of the price of any local shop and the local were
booked for months anyway.
I wish they used better thread. The dodger is great, but every so often
I need to redo some stitches.

I used them for my C&C 34 about 9 years ago.  I would not do so again.  
Quality was mediocre at best.  Every time I have gone to Genco, the man 
can not even make time to talk to me.   If you can't sit down and talk 
to me now at the sale and negotiation,   what's it going to be like when

I come back because I am not happy.    No thanks.  Besides, I see a lot 
of Genco dodgers that are way lower then they need to be.  I don't want 
to get on my hands and knees to crawl into the companion way.  I used 
German Styling in Toronto but he has since backed bags and gone to 
Newfound Land.....
