Hood Custom Marine Canvas

The name Hood has become synonymous with quality. Mark is the Nephew of the famous sailmaker, sailor and boat builder Ted Hood. Along with his brother Chris Hood who builds fine yachts, the Hood Brothers carry on the tradition of quality into the next generation.

Mark and Deb Hood have successfully run Hood Canvas over the past 35 years by continually refining their craft. This level of expertise is hard to come by in the marine canvas trade. We use only quality time tested materials along with very meticulous fabrication techniques. Solarfix lifetime Teflon thread is standard on all our fabrications, a must have... All of our quality fabrications are built to our exacting standards, just ask any of our customers!

Learn the Rewarding Marine Canvas Trade

From Sept through March every year Mark and Deb teach small “boutique” canvas training workshops for just four students per class. No other canvas school offers the individual attention, advanced fabrication techniques and years of experience in the trade that we do. We are an active canvas shop, so our students will see how a busy canvas shop runs and is set up. Our students come to us from around the world for quality canvas instruction. We shorten the time required to get established making money with quality fabrications. The marine canvas trade is inexpensive in terms of investment and very rewarding. Many of our students set up shops in their basement, garage or barn to keep overhead down, retail space is not a requirement. We enjoy seeing our students succeed and many are running successful shops today with continued support from us. Deb and I teach as a team, much the same as we fabricate our custom canvas. Please take the time to review our workshop photos and workshop testimonial pages.
