Bow Pads

Bow Pads

Chicago Marine Canvas Specializes in custom sunpads that expand your boat’s entertaining area!

Traditionally bow pads are made with vinyl. But the majority of pads we manufacture are made out of upholstery fabrics. Some projects use Sunbrella fabrics, which offers a wide range of options. Another brand of fabric that is used is called Serge Ferrari’s Batyline Elios line. 


The Sunpads are made with a Dri-Fast foam, that causes it to dry really fast.

Drifast foam is a firm open celled foam that is very porous. Which allows water to run through it easily instead of absorbing it like other closed cell foams. This allows the foam to rapidly dry and prevents it from growing mold and mildew.

After a hard morning rain, Sunpads will be dried out by the afternoon which means no more soggy Sunpads!

There are many different add-ons to make your sunpad even more custom to your boat. 

Built in headrests help with max comfort while relaxing on Sunpads. Sunpads are made with 3″ tampered foam, whereas the head rests are elevated to 6″. We also have custom foam cutting which is able to level the pads on a convex bow.

Nothing is better than built in pockets, which is why Custom Sunpads have pockets along the sides to hold your valuables. Cup holders can also be added into the head rests. No more having to worry about your phone, or drinks, sliding into the water while you’re relaxing.
