Boat Works

Jan and Mike and the Black Dog Design, Inc. Team have primarily built their business designing and manufacturing custom fabric products for all manner of boats, from the smallest runabouts and personal water crafts, to the largest houseboats.

This page serves to introduce the breadth of custom products Black Dog Design is capable of building for your boat.  Each heading below is a link to more information and photo galleries displaying some of our work.

Boat Covers

Whether your boat is power or sail, fishing or cruising, Black Dog Design, Inc. can fabricate protective covers in many styles and colors to suit your needs.  Follow the links here to pages showing a variety of designs for different types of boats.

Bimini Tops and Enclosures

Bimini tops and enclosures on boats provide sun and rain protection, welcome shade, and when properly designed, provide good visibility and air circulation. They may also provide shelter from the cold in winter, providing year-round enjoyment of your sailboat, cruiser, or party barge. Black Dog Design, Inc., manufactures your custom bimini tops and enclosures using the highest quality materials, and all seams are double-stitched for excellent durability.

Awnings for Houseboats and Barges

No matter what size an awning you require for your houseboat or barge, Black Dog Design, Inc., can manufacture and mount a solid frame and can cover it with a tough fabric of your choice.

Upholstery for Boats

In addition to our work with boat covers, awnings, biminis, and so forth, Black Dog Design, Inc., can also re-upholster your boat, whether it be a runabout/ski boat, cruiser, or houseboat.  No project is too large or too small.  We can update and restyle your boat with many custom options for design and color.
