Fabrication of covers for Sailboats can be more challenging that for ski boats, bass boats, or runabouts, due to the masts and additional rigging that must be accommodated. Covers can be partial “rain-fly” covers, or they may be tightly fitted for greater protection from the elements.
We at Black Dog Design, Inc. have built covers for a number of different sailboats in our geographic area.

Below are some additional articles about sailboat covers.
There was an article in a local magazine recently that featured a photograph of a sailboat dock at Mountain Harbor Resort. We were pretty excited about the photograph, since we recognized that a number of the boats shown featured canvas work that was fabricated by the Black Dog Design Team. So, not having received permission to use the magazine’s photo, we decided to grab a camera and take our own!
Much of Black Dog Design’s work can be seen in this photograph of sailboats at Mountain Harbor.
The photograph above shows boat covers, bimini tops and frames, mainsail covers, line bags, helm covers, and even a cover to protect the boat name on the stern from the elements.
The custom covers on this Hunter sailboat not only protect the mainsail, cockpit and bimini, but there is also a cover to protect the boat’s artwork on its stern!
All projects are custom and require careful measurement and the making of patterns prior to cutting and sewing the fabrics. Bimini frames can be fabricated according to customers’ wishes and the space available on the boat. Black Dog Design can also create covers for windows and the cockpit areas as desired.
