NEW!  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. Read more here.

Canvas Projects

It is spring!  In fact some of the days felt more like summer of late. If you need repairs or a replacement to your Dodger, Bimini, or other canvas, we now have some slots in which we can turn around work fairly quickly!

Wash em!

Free Inspection!

We recommend washing sails & canvas every 2 years. Fall and Winter is the best time to wash. (We can still wash during other months but shipping charges will apply). Sails can be dropped off at our loft in Alexandria, VA and, during the late fall/early winter, in Annapolis. Our Inspection & washing form is here.

Recycle Here! Sail Recycling

Recycle your old sails! Drop off old unwanted Dacron, laminate, mylar, or nylon sails at our loft. We recycle them and keep them out of landfills. No charge!
