Straight Line Custom Canvas

540.875.9343 (canvas shop phone)

We are glad to have Carl Bowyer and his business Straight Line Custom Canvas & Upholstery with us at Smith Mountain Marine.  Carl performs quality canvas and upholstery work on boats, and he has many years of experience!  Many of you may remember him when he worked with Ron Paré at the Yacht Club, and he continued to work there after Ron passed away, taking over as head of the canvas shop.   Carl’s work includes custom mooring covers, bimini tops, complete enclosures, bow and cockpit covers plus upholstery jobs.

Carl’s shop is located upstairs at SMM at Crystal Shores Marina on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta (on the Bedford county side of the lake).  Carl works year-round, to make an appointment please call Carl at his phone number:  540.875.9343 (canvas shop phone number) or contact his email  


Carl does awesome work! Thank you Carl, our Sea Ray is still looking good.
