Can anyone suggest a good place to get a new dodger made in the Baltimore/Annapolis area? We have a 38' Morgan.

I believe my old canvas was made by Christopher Ford Yacht Canvas in Annapolis. The previous owner of my vessel used them again on his new vessel, I've seen the work and it's also well done.

I'm in the NY area now and use someone closer to home.

My neighbor recommended Marty's Bag Works to me for new cushions. Marty's Bag Works - Home I've not bought anything there, but went in to have a look around adn they were 1) super nice and 2) very professional. Beautiful work!

You will probably get several responses, but you may want to checkout Shoreline in Pasadena at Mountain Road and Catherine just off Rt 100.

I've had them do some work for us and I have been pleased but have not had a dodger built by them.

Are you desiring a top quality one or something a little more reasonable, answering that may help with a recommendation, I would say Shoreline is somewhere in the middle.

Thumbs up We have used and were very pleased with.....

You can get a quote from Vickie Babylon. She does very good work. She can do the frame and the canvas work. She has a wonderful eye as far as making a dodger that works for you and is pleasing to the proportions of your vessel. I thought her prices were very fair. Canvas by Victoria at

She is near the Rock Hall/Worton area. Good luck.
