Thanks so much for making the side curtains on the dodger of my sailboat. It was such short notice on my part compounded by the circumstances of your move. But you handled everything so well, and the result was just as I envisioned and as you described. You have always been the person I preferred to do my canvas work over these past 15 or 20 years although I did not always get you. But your respect for your customers, your knowledge of the proper and best way to complete a project, and your consument skill in pattern making for a perfect fitting result put you head and shoulders above everyone else. And thanks so much for chasing me up the shore to complete the installation. You certainly went well beyond the limits of good service to accommodate my trials.
Sincerely, Larry Van Lare
Sail boaters know the importance of a good solid dodger for their sailboats. When it comes to designing a dodger each dodger is uniquely designed for each size and make of the sailboat. Customers have different needs in regards to height and lengths. Different rigging and placement of frames is critical and requires experience and expertise. Chris Ritsema owner of Canvas Innovations has been building dodgers since the mid 80's and has designed 100s of custom built dodgers. Chris along with his staff can help you achieve your custom requirements.
All stainless frames are bent in house and installed on location. The tops are then fit to the frame and all installations are done on board to achieve that custom fit.
