History

History   Neil Thurston's canvas career began in 1974 at Thurston Sails where he learned the intricacies of sail shapes and materials. Besides building sails, Neil designed and built dodgers and sailcovers and an immediate demand for his canvas products very quickly grew into a full- fledged business by the early 80's. Few canvas craftsmen have an eye for building canvas structures on boats like Neil does. He has designed and built entire product lines for major boat builders like Freedom Yachts, C&C, Tartan and TPI, builders of the J boats, Alerion, and True North. He is often asked to assist in the deck design to ensure a practical and aesthetic canvas addition. Today his customer base is well established world-wide, his quality and value recognized by an ever growing marine public.
