Hewitt Boat Lifts are manufactured by a company out of Nicollet, Minnesota. Started in 1971, this family-owned and operated company builds long-lasting boat lifts out of top quality materials.
In fact, these boat lifts last long enough that the original material wears out long before the lift needs replacing. That’s where we can help by offering economically priced canopy lift replacement covers that will fit custom to the Hewitt frame.
Our basic canopy lift replacement material is the Shelter-Rite Vinyl. This 18 oz. material is durable, UV, mold and mildew resistant. Available in Blue, Burgundy, Gray, Green, Red, Tan, White, or Yellow, this Vinyl canopy has a smooth, matte appearance.
Our most popular canopy lift replacement material is WeatherMax. Long term color retention, breathability, and superior water resistance are just a couple of features that make WeatherMax so popular. This lightweight fabric is available in colors such as Black, Burgundy, Captain Navy, Forest Green, Light Charcoal, Pacific Blue, Sandstone, Sapphire Tweed, Scarlet Red, Slate Linen, Taupe, and Yellow.
Looking to withstand particularly harsh environmental conditions? It’s true that you can do this with either WeatherMax or Shelter-Rite Vinyl. If you want the ultimate in protection, consider SeaMark. This blend of Sunbrella Acrylic and Hartz Vinyl yields a colorfast and waterproof fabric with unsurpassed fade resistance in your choice of six colors, Cadet Gray, Dubonnet Tweed, Forest Green, Hemlock Tweed, Linen Tweed, and Mediterranean Blue Tweed.
Hewitt is the only manufacturer that we cover with two different types of frames. When we write “types of frames”, we’re referring to frame shape, which can be flared or flat. Most other manufacturers have several sizes available but stick with one frame shape for ease of manufacture.
If you have a Hewitt with flared ends, the sides of your frame will have a square profile as pictured.
To measure for your replacement cover, you’ll need to measure from the frame’s outside edge to the other outside edge, along the centerline, not measuring up and over the top. For the width, you’ll need to measure from outside edge to outside edge.
Hewitt flared end replacement canopies are available in these sizes (for 20' and less, choose Hewitt (flat ends). Each one will provide a tight, tailored, custom fit to your existing frame.
If you have a Hewitt with flat ends, the top of your frame is most likely also peaked, as pictured.
Measuring is as easy as it is for the Hewitt with flared ends, and it works exactly the same.
Available custom sizes include:
