Our main focus is creating custom covers and tarps for many product applications. To accomplish this work we use We are always looking for new products to bring to the marketplace that enhance what we do as well as strive for better quality and customer satisfaction.


For pontoon and boat covers we use a material called Aqualon. Aqualon is a vinyl coated polyester canvas that is made here in the USA. Aqualon has excellent dimensional stability and weight-to-strength ratio. The material remains flexible in all climates and is resistant to mildew, abrasions, water penetration, most petroleum products, ultra - violet rays, as well as a wide range of acid and alkaline liquids. Aqualon comes with a 5 year warranty.

On some boats we use HarborTime®, a marine grade fabric made from acrylic-coated polyester, ideal for harsh marine environments because it offers exceptional resistance to abrasion while maintaining superior strength and visual appeal. Harbor-Time® is highly water repellent and resistant to both mildew and ultraviolet light making it ideal for a wide range of marine and automotive applications, including bimini's, T-tops, mooring and travel covers, and splash curtains.

We offer many colors in the materials we use to accomodate most requests. Also available are many different vinyls, canvas, screens, sunshades and much more!
