Marine Canvas, LLC

Changing the manners of our profession

I started this marine canvas business in the Baltimore metro area because I'm an avid boater and I want to offer my customers what I demand as a boater - a responsive, reliable service person who returns calls and shows up when scheduled.  I want to offer courteous service.  I want people to see my services enhance their boating experience. I thought it was time to change the manners of the marine canvas industry in Baltimore.  I will do what I say, on time for the price I quote. My years of management experience in other service related businesses, and as a skilled technician prepared me for this business.

I chose the business name to honor my father, Admiral John William Kime, a former Commandant of the United States Coast Guard.  Admiral Thad Allen, Commandant of the Coast Guard at the time of my dad's death said, "In the wake of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, Adm. Kime pioneered how the Coast Guard now prevents and responds to oil and hazardous chemical spills, significantly minimizing the environmental damage caused by such spills. His legacy can be seen today in how the Coast Guard responds to a broad range of threats and hazards to our maritime, homeland, and national security interests."

I service boats throughout the upper and middle Chesapeake Bay area from Solomons to Havre de Grace, including Baltimore, Middle River, Bowleys Quarters, Essex, Annapolis, and Pasadena.  We also serve all points on the Potomac River.  You can bring your boat to me at Sue Island Marina, or we will come to you.  We are conveniently located near all of the marinas on the Middle River, including Bowleys, Sunset, and Long Beach to name a few.  Although the business name says marine canvas, our work includes full enclosures, complete canvas, upholstery, carpeting, and interior design or decorating.  My wife, Joan, does the interior decorating.

We've been honored to receive national and Mid Atlantic Regional recognition for the work that we've done.  Admiral Marine Canvas received National Awards for Enclosures and Hard Enclosures.  We've received Mid Atlantic Regional Awards for Enclosures, Hard Enclosures, Marine Interiors, and Non-Marine Interiors.  The Chesapeake Bay Marine Canvas Fabricators Association, Inc awarded Admiral Marine Canvas its 2009 award for Best Enclosure on a 27 foot or larger boat - our first award. 

Our marine canvas is changing and expanding.  We've increased our impact in Baltimore and the middle Chesapeake Bay by becoming an EZ2CY dealer Becoming an EZ2CY dealer expands our impact in the industry allowing us to offer boaters in the Chesapeake Bay a complete line of marine enclosures.

We also offer enclosures featuring semi rigid Makrolon AR2, a scratch resistant UV protected polycarbonate which offers near optical glass clarity at a price comparable to standard flexible, or roll up enclosures we have all come to tolerate. Did I mention it lasts longer too?

So, why do business with me?  If you place a value on quality and attention to detail let me show you the difference in my work.  Whether you want a full enclosure or just a hatch cover call me, Ed Kime, marine canvas guy in the Baltimore, upper Chesapeake Bay, and middle Chesapeake Bay areas for a free estimate.  We will fabricate what you want, not what we think you may settle for. I hope to change your opinion of marine canvas guys, or at least this one.
