1-24-13:  Statistically, more boat covers sustain damage during the Winter due to Winter's harsh elements. Rain, snow, wind and cold temperatures can wreak havoc on even well-constructed boat covers (like ours!). Poles bend or break, damaging the canvas, snaps tear out due to ponding on the cover, seams give due to shrinkage. This leaves your boat's valuable interior susceptible to damage. Be sure to regularly inspect the fit and finish of your boat cover during the Winter. If you see areas of concern, give us a call or simply drop off the cover at the shop and we can repair and reinforce your cover to ensure it does a good job protecting your boat.  

2-01-13:  A boat show is a great place to learn about new boating products, new boats, and to meet fellow boaters. Vendors build elaborate displays and go to great lengths to ensure potential customers enjoy the experience. There are always plenty of hand-outs such as product literature, catalogs, local area services, and even free samples of marine products. 
The Mid-Atlantic Boat Show will take place February 11-14 at the Charlotte Convention Center in uptown Charlotte. It's a big show with lots of vendors...including us! So come on down and be sure to stop by our booth and say Hi!
