Defining craftsmanship

Although there are various ways of constructing an item made of cloth and flexible plastics, they do not all produce a great result. After lots of trial and error, we have discovered one that upholds the utmost excellence in craftsmanship.

Strong Structual Frame

We use 7/8-inch, 1-inch, and super heavy duty 1- and 1/4 inch stainless steel to build Biminis and enclosure frames. Depending on what is most suitable for your vessel, we bend the frame shoulders at radius of 6, 8, 10, or 12 inches. All fitting used in frame assembly is also made of stainless steel.

Robust, Delux Trim

Our upscale, deluxe trim features window panels fitted with premium clear vinyl sandwiched between two layers of fabric and sewn with waterproof sealant within the seem to prevent water from penetrating. Most fabric edges are hemmed where possible and practical. We also add additional layers of fabric where needed as reinforcement. These steps ensure that the product is waterproof, robust, and seamless to the eye.


Existing canvas covers often stretch or shrunk, are covered in functional and aesthetic issues due the previous fabricators, or have a less than optimal trim style. Therefore, we take careful measurements and produce a new pattern for each new, customized enclosure, Bimini, or cockpit cover.

Premium Marine Fabrics

Because water, sun, and pollutants deteriorate many fabrics and materials, we use Sunbrella®, SeaMark®, and Stamoid™ marine-grade fabrics. These offer the best choices for quality, while Sunbrella® represents a gold standard in most applications.

Premium Clear Window Vinyl

Constant exposure to the elements, namely sun, wind, and water, eventually takes a toll on materials. We recommend use premium marine grade, 30 and 40 mil thick clear vinyl. We recommend premium brands such as Strata Glass™ and O’Sea®, which are both considered equivalent.

Zippered Bimini Pockets

We fit all our Bimini tops with pockets with zippers. This provides extra flexibility, and the Bimini can easily be installed or removed as needed.

Teflon (PTFE) Thread

The best marine threads are PTFE lifetime guarantee and that’s what we recommend. Choose between Tenara® and SolarFix®.


Zippers take a lot of abuse and need to stand up to challenging marine requirements. It’s important that they look good, too. We use industrial-strength #10 Zippers made by YKK Fastening Products Group.


Any area that has a fastening will have some weak points. To ensure that covers don’t tear and fastenings don’t fall off, we add up to 3-4 layers of reinforcing material (of the same type) to ensure maximal durability and strength.
