I’m Scott Baranick. A-1 Boat Canvas started in 1947 in New Jersey when my brother-in-law, Jack, and my sister, Pat, opened an upholstery shop in coastal New Jersey. I joined them when I was just a child. They taught me how to work and how to work hard. They taught me how to do an excellent upholstery job, using nothing but the best products. They taught me how to do right by my customers. We moved together to Florida and I’ve taken over the business. They must have taught me well because A-1 Boat Canvas is still here after all these years, when so many marine upholstery shops have failed. The business is located just north of the Roosevelt Bridge, near St. Lucie Marina. I serve the Treasure Coast, from Vero Beach to the Jupiter Inlet including Jensen Beach, Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce, Stuart, Manatee Pocket, Hobe Sound, and Jupiter plus the Palm Beaches like Royal Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach.

Like I said, I use the best products, starting with TENARA Sewing Thread. TENERA thread has a lifetime guarantee because it doesn’t rot and is impervious to salt water and sunshine. It’s expensive and worth every penny. You know the value of good thread if you’ve ever had a zipper pull out or have to have glass sewn back in after the thread fails. I use Sunbrella ® and Stamoid ® marine treated fabrics. Sunbrella sets the industry standard, but the Ferrari Group’s Stamoid fabric is an up-and-comer in marine fabrics. I don’t use the hard glass that has to be glued in – it’s too expensive and too prone to failure. I use Makrolon ® Hard Glass that can be sewn into the canvas. Strataglass ™ is used to finish out the enclosures. This multi-layer, treated clear glass is great. I double seam everything for durability. I offer good prices on great work.

I also limit my business to those things I do well, like, bridge enclosures, hard glass enclosures, Bimini tops, custom-made full marine (mooring) covers, cockpit covers, T-Tops, cockpit covers, dodgers, bridge covers, chair covers and cushions, carpet runners, teak covers, and canvas repairs.

Here are a few other reasons to use me for your marine canvas work:
  • I have an arrangement with a local marina so that you don’t have to pay an uplift of 10 to 20 % on my bill to your marina.
  • I don’t have the “Island Mentality.” I’m still working like it’s Jersey.
  • I take credit cards both for the deposit and the work. If you’ve ever lost a deposit to someone who never did the work, you understand the value of credit cards.
  • I stand behind my work – no questions. My website guy pulled a snap off his new sunscreen and I replaced it at no charge. He should have used a snap tool. A guy lost his boat in a hurricane after paying me his deposit and I refunded the deposit. It wasn’t easy for me to do that – I needed the money, but it was the right thing to do.
  • Pat and Jack need a place to come to work everyday and I owe them a lot.
So let me recap why I hope you’ll do business with me:
