Why Boat Canvas ?

There are many reasons to become a marine canvas fabricator. Let me share just a few of mine. First and foremost is the freedom it affords. I’ve always said this is the best trade you can be in for a simple reason, when I’m at work the people I’m working for are on their play toy. Next I would say its the sense of satisfaction watching, on a daily basis, the creative products you produce. This is a trade where it seems you are never just content. You’re always looking for ways to better yourself and the products. I love the boat canvas business.

Is the workshop one on one training

Yes – We only accept 4 students per workshop. Each person will have their own work station for the duration of the workshop. Every student will construct every component of the entire enclosure.

How much is the workshop ?

4 day class with 1 year annual subscription to the website included.  $2000.00.

Let me put this in perspective.  Suggested retail price for a 40′ SeaRay Sedan bridge full enclosure $6800.00  Current cost of materials $2200.00  Net profit $4600.00.  Once you learn my build process your goal should be to build this enclosure in 35 hours.  That is $131.00 net profit per hour.  One boat pays for this course..

Do you have a basic workshop ?

NO – There is nothing basic about boat canvas. You should have a good understanding how to sew before you attend our workshops. Once your sewing skills are up to par its time to learn how to fabricate. Thats when our workshops will be the most valuable. We do not teach you how to make a “basic” enclosure. We only teach you how to make a “professional” quality enclosure.
