Don S. Boat Cover

Although I have done many different boat covers, this was my first custom one for Trenholm Sew-All. It was definitely a challenge with all the windows, etc, but it was fun.

This isn’t actually the final design as I forgot to take pics. It is almost identical, but we decided to modify the front hatch. The original design had stress points that tore, so the hatch was modified with zippers that extended up the whole front.

Update 2014: This post is for sample work only. I only make boat cover repairs, not custom boat covers.

Custom Electronics Bag

Besides starting businesses and watching them grow, it’s also interesting to be involved with someone else who is heading that way. That is what I was blessed to be a part of with Jason Poitras and Field Talk Radios, before he sold it to another entrepreneur.

He came to me at the very beginning of his project that uses blue tooth technology to interact with various survey equipment. He had a bag designed to strap the equipment to surveying tripods and wanted a local company to do the production. What started as 10 units in March, that took a few months to sell, has now translated into 60 more units in the same time period, and ending up making hundreds. Well done!

So, here’s the pics:
