There are many aspects to maintaining a beautiful seaworthy boat. All the systems need to be maintained in good working order and the boat kept clean, and presentable. There are four types of boat services that you will routinely see at the marina: divers, detailers, mechanics and canvas people. All of these services are valuable and necessary. However, let’s talk a little about marine canvas in this post.
Just about every boat has some type of canvas product on the boat. Canvas has a lot of purposes. It can protect you and the boat from the elements with biminis, dodgers, covers and enclosures. Beautiful cushions enhance the beauty and comfort of your boats cockpit and salon. Not to mention all the little touches you can add to your boat for ease of use and additional storage space.
Popular canvas products include, biminis, dodgers, enclosures, cushions, and boat covers. If you take a look at the boats in your marina, you will no doubt see a variety of items in canvas. In Florida, it is essential to have some type of cover from the sun. A bimini is essential if you plan to spend time on the water. If you do not have a bimini, this is probably the best place to start in order to enhance the comfort of your boat.
Top quality canvas products can last many years if well taken care of. If you are thinking about how you can improve the comfort and looks of your boat, think about a canvas project.
