We can create your necessary canvas from scratch, remake it using your old one
as a pattern or repair your existing canvas. We tailor the finest sunbrella,
coated sunbrella and other high end coated materials to ensure looks, fit and
This is the most important canvas in your boat. It shields you from the sun
and occasional rain. These tops can be made for you to sit under, snapping
to the windshield and with a flap for you to unzip and stand up through, or
high enough for you to stand under. This option is naturally determined by
This is the canvas which zips to the back of the top and slopes back to the
transum. The aft curtain can also be the back wall of a bridge enclosure. It
can be used just as a mooring enclosure, or it can be made with windows and
zippers to be put in place when the boat is in use during inclement weather.
This is the clear plastic window unit which snaps from the top of the windshield
to the front of a raised bimini top.
These are the clear plastic window units which create the sides of the top
enclosure. They are removable and usually installed for cooler weather. These
can range from small wedge shapes on small speed boats to large curtains on
These covers are made to protect just the center console/instrumentation area
on center console boats.
These covers zip on over and protect the folded down, rolled up sail along
COMPLETE CUSTOM COVERS
These covers are custom made to cover the specific boat and usually have a
separate pocket for the outboard engine. They will either have bungey or
grommets to allow you to tie it down. Although economical universal covers
are available, our custom covers are the right choice if you want a superior
quality material and/or a specialized custom fit.
This is the cover which protects the boat's open area when it is not in use.
These generally snap to the top of the windshield, but can also be made to
cover over and snap to the bottom of the windshield. It will also snap along
the sides and back to the transum. Mooring poles to help prevent rain from
pooling on the cover are also available.
This is like a mooring cover, but just covers the open bow section.
If small problems develop with your existing canvas, but the damage does not
warrant complete replacement, we can generally repair it. This may include
sewing seams back together or patching holes in the canvas, replacing broken
zippers or missing snaps, and especially replacing clear plastic windows which
have become hazy or cracked.
FRAMES AND HARDWARE
Most of the canvas work we do is on boats which have existing top frames. However,
if your boat has no top or frame at all, or if the original one is damaged
beyond repair, we can create the frame work from scratch.
We can naturally also supply all of the proper mounting hardware for your new
top, or to replace old damaged or missing hardware.
CUSHIONS AND UPHOLSTERY
Our highly skilled staff of expert upholsterers are happy to handle your cushion
work regardless of how big and complex to how small and simple the job may
We can duplicate an original upholstery design, customize or upgrade the look,
change the color scheme, just do a repair, or create cushions from scratch.
These seats may range from highly bolstered, wrap around buckets with wild
color and stitching designs on high end power boats, to a simple, flat, white
backrest and cushion on a typical cruiser.
BACK TO BACK SEATS
This is the most common seting set up in small to mid sized boats. These seats
can be upright for two people or slide down into a lounge.
Although it may be more economical to purchase new seats than redo your old
ones, new ones are generally smaller, not necessarily a matching color, and
are of less quality than the original set up. This is why we often reupholster
the original back to back seats.
These seats which sit against the transum usually consist of a cushion and
coordinated backrest. Some have wrap around armrests.
This would include other seating areas such as bow cushions, the seat in front
of a center console, the cushions on each side of a rear engine housing, and
the additional seats on a fly bridge.
These are the upholstered sections on the walls of the boat. They can be very
long, single units or multiple piece units. They can be elaborately designed
with multiple colors and stripes to match the seats or plain and simple.
This is the large, padded, upholstered panel which covers the engine and acts
as a sunbathing bed. These are usually striped to match the seats.
This is the structure which covers the inboard portion of the engine (also
known as the doghouse). It is usually padded and upholstered and sometimes
has carpet around the lower base.
Cabins naturally come in all different sizes, shapes and trim levels. Commonly
it is these V-Berth cushions which we recover and they can range from 2 -
12 in quantity in any given cabin. We can recover them in exterior grade
vinyl or sunbrella, or in a variety of solid or printed fabrics. These cushions
can also be completely made from scratch.
FOAM & WOOD REPLACEMENT
On any cushion job we do, we offer the option of reusing the existing foam
or replacing it with new foam. New foam will naturally be more comfortable,
hold the upholstered shape better, and help eliminate any old musty smell.
Any wood structure which has become rotted can also be replaced with marine
grade plywood while we are working on your cushions and panels.
CARPETING AND MATS
Eventually your boat carpet may fade and wear out, or you may just want to
change the color. From state rooms on yachts, to cabins on cruisers, to cockpits
on speed boats, we can supply the right type of carpet whether it glues in
place or snaps into position.
SNAP DOWN MATS
This type of carpet is available in either a thick, cut pile texture or a multi-tone,
heavy duty loop texture. The backing has a durable, ribbed rubber design which
is emblazened right into place.
These mats can be cut to shape, have a finishing edge of binding sewn on, and
snaps installed. We can base the design on your original, trim them from your
paper pattern or dimensions, or tailor them right to the boat.
PROTECTORS AND RUNNERS
These would be small removable protector mats or long roll up runners, usually
cut out of the matching carpet, which would protect high traffic areas on the
Unlike snap down carpet, this marine carpet has a more flexible backing and
is intended to be trimmed and glued into position and not be removable (until
it may need replacement years later). This carpet is available in 6' and 12'
widths in a variety of grades and colors.
HEADLINERS & HULLINERS
With the summer heat and salt air, the ceiling and wall coverings inside cabins
will eventually begin to sag or stain. We can rejuvenate the look of the cabin
by replacing these materials. Foam backed vinyls and wider, more stretchable,
fuzzy textured materials in a vaiety of light colors are available for you
to purchase by the yard or to have us trim and glue directly to the boat.
Cars are not the only thing we can add high fidelity sound to. We can install
AM/FM/Cassette/CD/MP3 music capability to your boat, with outdoor speakers,
and now even satellite radio as well!
