We adopted some basic principles:
" Was our company
going to focus
on production,
creativity or a
blend of both? "
* Each job we estimate must contain
an element of improvement over the
current design. This may require
something as simple as reversing
the direction of a doorway zipper to
a totally different style and type of
enclosure. Recently, we've adopted a
" no straight lines " approach for our
sailboat frame systems.
* Each job must include something not
typically found on all the other boats
of its kind. This can be something
as insignifi cant as using magnetic
catches for those hard-to-reach
places. Over the years we've had

great success by throwing out the
norm and adding functional designs
that makes it easier for clients to use
our canvases.
Creativity equals profi tability
Now, you might wonder why you
need to think out of the box if you're
happy doing the same ole thing over
and over. The answer is profi tability.
In our market, we are seeing marine
service departments and canvas shops
needing to charge a $150 to $250 per
hour labor rate to cover infl ationary
costs and payroll. On the East and West
Coasts, these rates may be double.
