Cleaning Care for Marine Canvas

No matter who fabricated the canvas on your boat, regular care and cleaning will extend the life of your investment. We can recommend the proper cleaning agents and techniques, or provide full cleaning, repair and storage of your canvas, it's up to you.

At Mobile Marine Canvas we use Tenara® thread by GoreTex exclusively. It will outlast the fabric in any system and never need restitching. If your canvas has been fabricated with polyester thread it can fail in a few years. To test the thread, gently insert a small awl under a stitch in the area most exposed to the sun. If it breaks now is the time to get the canvas restitched. Waiting until a seam fails and starts to open can significantly increase the labor cost of a restitch - the main cost.

As a further clue, Tenara looks shiny, polyester does not.
