Formula®: Formula® by Thunderbird®, built in Decatur, IN.

Formula® made changes to their canvas in 2006. To be assured that you get the correct canvas, we suggest that you contact Formula® direct, with your hull number (HIN), to get the appropriate part numbers for the 2006 (and some other transition years) year boat. We may have canvas for boats prior to 1999, but we'll need the part number from the tag on your existing canvas to match.

Factory Original-Equipment-Manufacturer (OEM) Canvas for Formula® boats: RNR-Marine™ is a leading dealer for Ameritex® Fabrics, who patterned and manufactured Factory Original-Equipment-Manufacturer (OEM) canvas for Formula® 240, 241, 260, 27, 270, 271, 280, 290, 292, 31, 310, 315, 316ATS, 330, 34, 340, 350, 353, 37, 370, 372, 382 Fastech, 40, 400, 401, 410, 45, 45 Coupe, 47, 48 andamp; 480 SS, PC, RA, SSS and Fastech boats from 1999 to current.

We produce new canvas (diagram explaining what each piece of canvas is called) in the Pacific Blue, Jockey Red, Cadet Grey, Linen, Green Tweed, Mediterranean Blue Tweed (053), Taupe (no longer available) and Persian Tweed (no longer available). Many Front Connectors, Arch-Connections, Side-Curtains and Boots were available only in Silver Sunbrella or White Aqualon per Formula specs. Sunbrella (or White Aqualon or Mustang) with SeaMark vinyl-lined, waterproof Sunbrella tops fabric colors originally offered by Formula® only. Note: Formula Canvas Zipper Size: #8 (6 teeth/inch) used up to 2005/2006 and 2009 model year forward, #10 (5 teeth/inch) wer used from the end of 2005 (and early 2006) through 2008 model year. Some Boot Covers MAY have the Formula(r) logo embroidered in Silver, Black or White (Formula specified depending on fabric color). All Formula(r) frame bows are stainless steel. Most (NOT All) Formula(r) Tops have zippered frame (bow) pockets for easy installation. Formula(r) installed the snaps in the boats, canvas and covers at their factory, so we cannot install the canvas snaps for you because we do not have locations (see Canvas/Snap Installation to learn about installing snaps). We do not have any factory OEM Bow, Cockpit or Mooring Covers, since these were made in-house by Formula(r), We can only sell canvas and covers direct for Formula(r) boats over 2 years old. OEM canvas part number scheme: [xxx] identifies the canvas piece and [cccc] is the color code. Formula(r) HIN = TNRsssssmbyy , where [yy] = model year. Windows are made with 30ga Eisenglass flat (not rolled) clear vinyl window material. Specifications, care and cleaning of Sunbrella (or White Aqualon or Mustang) with SeaMark vinyl-lined, waterproof Sunbrella tops , 30ga Eisenglass flat (not rolled) clear vinyl and other canvas materials are detailed below. In some cases (if the boat mfgr is out of business for example you can upgrade the windows to Strataglass coated clear vinyl (approx. 50-60 percent more cost), however the standard Eisenglass (clear vinyl) will last for many years with proper care, cleaning and storage. We utilize our library of 1,000's of patterns to produce new, "made-to-order" Factory Original canvas for your Formula® boat. This is the same canvas originally offered from the Formula® Factory and sold by your local Formula® dealer (local dealers may only go back 5 years or so however, and charge local sales tax, which we do not charge except in SC and FL). No other canvas manufacturer has these patterns or the ability to produce the exact factory Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) replacement canvas and covers that were offered from the Formula® Factory when your boat was new.

Please be sure that you have the Factory Formula® frame or matching canvas.
Zipper Sizes #8 and #10
Size #10 (5 teeth/inch) and #8 (6 teeth/inch) zipper comparison and measurement
There are no cancellations, refunds or returns on Factory OEM canvas, since it is all "made-to-order" for you. Some owners (and even dealers, when new) installed their own "after-market" Bimini Tops, T-Tops, Hard-Tops and Canvas, so please:

  1. Compare your canvas or frame to the Formula® factory OEM photos shown here,
  2. Check for "Ameritex" or "Taylor Made" tags with Formula® OEM part numbers on existing canvas,
  3. Verify that your existing canvas has # 8 on most, 10 on some models gauge zippers (factory original-equipment Formula® OEM zipper size):
    • #8 gauge zippers have 6 teeth per inch and will NOT zip to #10 zippers,
    • #10 gauge zippers have 5 teeth per inch and will NOT zip to #8 zippers,
    • See zipper size comparison photo at right,
    • Please note that after-market canvas makers often use the large #10 gauge zippers.
    • The zipper gauge size is actually the height of the teeth, 8mm or 10mm tall for example. (#8 has 8mm tall teeth and #10 is 10mm tall for example). Since it is very difficult to measure the zipper tooth height, the easiest way to measure zipper size is to count the number of teeth over 2 inches: a #8 zipper has 12 teeth over 2 inches and a #10 zipper has 10 teeth over 2 inches.

Additional Shade for Formula® boats : When its hot you can never have enough shade. Our Boat Shade Kits (starting at $509.00 , SALE PRICE: $488.64 (Winter Prep Sale)) extend shade over the cockpit or bow (can even be used like a Spray-Dodger) and can be put up or taken down in minutes.

Covers for Formula® boats : We offer

Custom After-Market Covers for Formula® boats : We also offer after-market Westland® Exact-Fit™Boat Covers (from $127) and Carver® Custom-Fit™Boat Covers (from $239), Styled-To-Fit™Boat Covers (from $229) and Westland® Select-Fit ™ (by boat type/size) Boat Covers (from $117) and in Sunbrella® marine fabric (the best quality, breathable fabric for covers) as well as some excellent high-quality, but less expensive materials, that are designed as an "Exact-Fit" using measurements taken from your particular model of outboard motor.
