What ever your trimming requirements, whether standard or a little more unique contact Dave Elliott for quality and innovative solutions.

A good fitting, well designed dodger can make all the difference to the look and performance of your yacht.  Dave designs and builds dodgers that are strong, practical and attractive.  He can recover your existing frame or bend a new one to enhance the lines of your boat. Dodger clear screen covers can also be provided to prolong the life of your dodger.

Dodges can now be created with Polycarbonate clear windows.

Shelter from sun and weather increases enjoyment when out on the water and provides protection and shelter when back in the marina or on anchor - a good fitting bimini provides that shelter and protection.  Dave makes standard biminis or can build one using the Hard Top Effect technique.

Hard Top Effect 
Using Stamoid cloth and a glueing and moulding technique, the Hard Top effect is created with the appearance of a solid looking cover.  The advantage of this system is that there is nearly no seaming so no weak point or needle holes.

The Hard Top Effect is suitable for both yachts and launches due to the flexibility in design - hard tops created have ranged from 3-30 square metres.

Clear Enclosures
All boat owners understand the importance of having quality clear screens.  Clear screens are a big investment which is why David Custom Trimmers use only quality materials to ensure that years from now your clears will still be looking great and functioning well.

Soft Clear Enclosures
With the use of Strataglass we can create clear enclosures with excellent visibilty, that have roll up sections for access and ventilation. All zips have moulded covers to help each you clear screens water resistant.

Canvas Enclosures
For protection from the sun and weather, we can create a range of solutions to enclose your boat. Covers can be removable or we can add roll up sections for access, zip-out panels or mesh panels for ventilation. We can also create interchangable sections to accommodate a range of situations. Canvas enclosures can be combined with clearscreens to protect you screens whilst providing additional shade and shelter. Enclosures can be made from a range of materials including acrylic canvas, stamoid canvas and shade mesh.

Sun Awnings 
Framed Awnings
If you require an awning on a frame without the need for support legs, such as a rear deck awning, we can design and build a frame and canopy perfectly suited to the shape and style of your boat. We can also add zips to hang clear or mesh screens to enclose your canopy.

Suspended Awnings
Dave has designed a large area sunshade awning that is strong and stable without battens - this has been achieved by utilising the properties of light Stamoid. These also include front V awnings and roll up boom bag awnings.  His awnings have survived storms unscathed, when 80knots winds went through the RQYS marina.  The awnings provide excellent sunshade, are robust and easy to hoist and stow.

Boom Bag Awnings
Whereas a regular suspended awning needs to be folded and stored when not in use, our boom bag awnings roll out from neat storage bags affixed to either side of your boom. They provide plenty of shade and weather protection,
without interfering with your sail or rigging. These awnings easily roll up into slimline bags, which many customers hardly notice attached to the boom.
