canvas

  • Memo's Custom Canvas, Chula Vista - 619-427-0605
    • Guillermo and crew did lots of the canvas work for H&S Yachts and I am really happy with his service and my custom bimini

marine surveys

  • Jarvie Marine Surveyors - 619-977-7992
    • George Jarvie has been surveying all types of boats since 2003 - not only does he really know his stuff, you should see the salvage sailboat he rebuilt from the bottom up. Have him do a condition and value survey before you buy the boat and you'll know what you're getting into!

fire extinguisher annual maintenance

  • Golden State Fire Protection - 619-501-1715
