Boat Cover Terminology

Visit Our Store

Have you ever been trying to do a computer search for a certain type of boat cover, but were unsure of what boat cover terminology to use?  Or maybe you've called your local marine canvas fabricator to get a quote, but requested a quote for the wrong type of cover?
It happens here all the time.  We often receive phone calls from boaters wanting a quote on a particular piece of canvas, and then usually need to spend the first 5 minutes asking questions to make sure we are on the same page.
We thought it would be helpful to share this informative photo chart of boat cover terminology.  This handy chart was developed years ago by the Marine Fabricators Association as an educational tool.
I hope you'll find it to be a great reference tool worth saving!
