About us 

We are long time boat owners and have first hand knowledge with the use of canvas and sail products. For over 10 years we have lived in the Florida Keys, referred to "The American Caribbean", on our sailboat " The Calypso Poet". The first few years we had the opportunity to sail the east and west coast of Florida. We also took a 9 month family sail to Isla Mujeres, Mexico which is on the east side of the Yucatan Channel and 4NM offshore mainland Quintana Roo 4.5  North Northeast of Cancun. It is also 50 miles north of the more popular dive port of Cozumel. We headed through ports of the Ambergris Caye through San Pedro Pass, Cay Caulker, and Palcencia, Belize to the mouth of Livingston, Guatemalia. Then sailed up the Rio Dulce River to Fronteras, Guatemalia. We also made a few round trips from Key West to the Dry Tortugus, anchoring at the Fort, where Dr Mudd was imprisoned for the help in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and Loggerhead Key Light House. Needless to say, we are living  in a picture postcard under and above the waterline. We have been fortunate to share and listen to many adventurous cruising and cultural stories and even volunteered with the Jungle Medic in Guatemala. Many times we made temporal material window shades, covers and screening to take shelter from the sun and rain. Now we have designed and constructed these items ourselves out of the appropriate canvas and sail material. With our various background knowledge and professional training we offer our services to continue living the casual lifestyle in the beautiful tropical islands. We cover the entire Florida Keys and have been broading our service area to the entire United States and The Caribbean, Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. When we sail we also carry a sewing machine and canvas for repairs for our customers from the states, if we can get away for a small crusing trip. Mainly, we get to enjoy our customers cruising stories and anyone who stops by the workshop. Presently, while keeping up with work orders from our canvas shop, it only allows us to take a day sail to Rodriguez Key and the Florida Key reefs. We throw anchor, dingy to shore and then drive to our shop for a days work. Thank you for your business and support. Hope to you hear from you soon! We always look forward to reconnecting with alot of our cruising buddys. We will remain a port in Key Largo for sailors and power boaters to make provisions and repairs for their traveling needs in the Florida Keys and other destinations.
