It is Spring!  We have been busy this winter doing Washing, making Cushions, Boat Covers, Bimini’s, Dodgers, and numerous repairs to Sails and Canvas! If you still need repairs No problem!

Update!  Flexible Solar Panel Mounting System

Our vented, lightweight & strong twinwall polycarbonate substrate that is custom cut to the dimensions of your Solar Panel. Allows panels to go over bows, prevents crystal destruction by flagging and excessive bending and provides needed cooling. We changed the design to eliminate the Velcro flaps and use snaps.
