Custom Marine Canvas
Sail or Power, Hood Canvas can provide the custom canvas you need. We use only quality time tested materials along with very meticulous fabrication techniques. Solarfix lifetime Teflon thread is standard. We offer 60 GA Makrolon Polycarbonate and 80 GA Acrylite Bonded Acrylic Windows as extra cost options. We never cut corners and we train our students to do the same. Every piece is sequentially built to our exacting standards, just ask any Hood customer. As always, it is best to plan ahead!
