Canvas Experts Inc., Ocean City, Md.
This project, which won an Award of Excellence in the full covers 27 feet and up category of the 2009 MFA Awards, featured a full complete cover to protect the boat during travel and storage. Sixteen templates were patterned to create this job. It took nine and a half hours to pattern and it took more than 80 hours to sew. All edges of acrylic fabric were covered with an acrylic braid binding so that a soft edge would touch the boat. Canton fabric was used on anything that needed protection from the acrylic fabric.
