Max Dahl's


"Your source for real canvas products."

WELCOME! If you are looking for the services of a first-rate canvas shop, you have come to the right place. Custom canvas fabrication done in my own shop here in northern Minnesota. Daily UPS shipping. Some of the products and services I offer are listed below.


Great custom boat covers and bimini tops. (Usually need your boat at my shop for the larger boats - for canoes, kayaks, and small trailerable boats visit my canoe and kayak cover page below) We are centrally located in the northern lake region of Minnesota, and boat canvas is my specialty. We are especially proud of our custom travel covers for boats. A few examples of custom covers I have made for my local customers below.

Custom pontoon boat covers

Custom protective canvas covers or tarps... to your specs and for your specific need. If you have an item of value you would like to protect from the elements, I can probably make a cover that will work for you.

All-weather custom sized canoe and kayak covers. If you've been wondering where to buy a good canoe or kayak cover, look no further. Protect your valuable investment. I will make a custom sized cover of premium marine grade polyester fabric to fit any standard canoe or kayak - usually just need a few measurements for these (or I already have dimensions for many popular models on file). Storage covers for smaller kayaks and canoes start at about $100. All covers are handmade in my shop in northern Minnesota from quality fabric manufactured in the USA. Covers typically last for years!

I also make travel and storage covers for trailerable canoes and small boats such as the Gheenoe, Grumman Sport Boat, Sportspal, square stern canoes, dinghies, and other small trailerable boats.   Click on the link below to view photos of covers for small boats.

Canoe and kayak storage covers

"Hey Max, I got the kayak cover and it looks GREAT! The fit could not be any better. I have it loaded on my truck and will get you a picture or two later this afternoon. I'll get good enough pics so that you can use them for advertising. I would think these would be a hot ebay item. Thanks so much for your work and I hope we can do some more business in the future."
