The Marine Fabricators Association honored Canvas Experts with an Award of Excellence for rigid enclosures.

Designer Michael Varga and fabricator Victor Albino used Safety Components' innovative BreakWater X in their winning installation.

When Varga and Albino came upon Brenda Lou, an Albemarle 330 Express, they found that the original enclosure was leaking. Water had damaged the helm and delicate electronics. The duo fabricated a custom, rigid enclosure with BreakWater X, EZ2CY marine tracks and a clear vinyl panel door.

"It's an exceptional fabric," Varga said in a statement. "BreakWater X gives me a huge advantage."

Maryland-based Canvas Experts has been using the material since it was introduced. BreakWater X is built to withstand a marine environment and is backed by a 10-year warranty.
