Starr Docks and Lifts only offers fabric options that will meet our customers’ needs. We regularly tests fabrics for tear strength, abrasion resistance, coating adhesion, stitch and seam strength, cold flex and wind whip – in order to create the most suitable covers for your marine application.

Starr Pro Canopy Systems offer 4 depth and style options!

Starr Canopy Systems are much deeper than the competition, and are available in 4 different styles. Our Standard Canopy is 38″ deep from the peak to the lower valance, providing superior protection for your watercraft in most situations.

Need a deeper canopy? Try our Extra 12″ Style canopy which offers a depth of 50″, or our ultra-deep Extra 24″ style canopies with an incredible 62″ depth.

Our Open Ended canopy will minimize the impact of high-wind sites by preventing air from becoming trapped beneath the canopy fabric, and the open ends make this our least visually intrusive canopy systems.

These covers are constructed by using heat-welded seams in the main body of the cover to create a waterproof environment for your boat.

Cleaning your Canopy

In order to keep your canopy system looking good, you should take the time to hose down your canopy fabric on a monthly basis with clean water. This helps prevent dirt and mildew from building up and becoming embedded in the fabric. In most cases and with proper care, your Starr Canopy System should only require a thorough cleaning every two to three years, though you may need to maintain your canopy system more often in harsher environments. Deep cleaning your canopy fabric occasionally will also help to prolong the life of your canopy and to keep it looking its best. In order too thoroughly clean your canopy fabric, you should follow the simple procedure outlined below:

  1. Remove any loose dirt with a brush.
  2. Thoroughly hose down the canopy fabric.
  3. Prepare a cleaning mixture of water and mild natural soap (no detergents).
  4. Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
  5. Allow soap to soak in.
  6. After several minutes you may wish repeat steps 4 and 5 to remove any hard set stains.
  7. Rinse thoroughly.
  8. Allow the canopy to air dry completely before storage. Never store your canopy while wet.
