Renegade Canvas is a small full-service, Custom Marine Canvas Fabricator using the finest techniques and the best materials available in the market. At the Helm is Chris Cadman. He has owned Renegade Canvas, formerly RC’s Marine Upholstery and Audio since 2006. Chris is personally involved in every project, from the estimate to patterning, sewing and installation.
Chris has spent his whole life around water and on boats. His love for boats is what has gotten him where he is today. When it came time to reupholster the cockpit in one of his personal boats, he started taking his old seats apart and said “I can do this”. After spending many years as a career firefighter he decided to venture out on his own and started his own business doing boat canvas and upholstery and hasn’t looked back since. He bought a sewing machine and taught himself how to sew. He completed some of his first canvas jobs out of the garage in his home. Later he purchased a box truck where he set up his machine and traveled to different marinas in the area. In 2009, he ran into Carlton Phillips, the owner of Prince William Marina, voted number one dealer in North America 2010 and 2011. Carlton was in need of a full time canvas shop at his marina, so Chris took the opportunity and has been running his shop out of Prince William Marina since.
