Our story

The idea for our Canvas shop was born on a journey down the coast and on our way to the Virgin Islands. After a few torn sails, broken Bimini frames, and the need for new canvas to protect us and our boat from the harsh Tropical Rays, a need presented itself. We became very proficient at keeping our canvas and sails in great working order. When we needed a new Dodger, we made one... When we needed a new Bimini, we made one... When the boat cushions were lost in a storm, ... you guessed it; we made new ones.

The bottom line, the cruising life made us appreciate great workmanship and made us love the sense of accomplishment of a job well done.
