Shane Genis - Owner/ Marine Fabricator/Upholstery

Shane Genis is Midland raised and has been around boats his entire life.  With an idea of a Boat Top career, Shane moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2007 to develop his skills in the industry.  With the salty breeze behind him, Shane returned home and in 2008 opened Top Line Canvas in Midland. 

A familiar face to boaters alike, Shane has been a reputable Top Builder for 8 years, along our Georgian Bay shores.  We are proud to have him on our team and are excited to have him call G.I. Boat Tops home.

We like that here at G.I.  She started her career in industrial sewing in the boating industry about 5 years ago, which has given her the experience necessary to transition to G.I.  She has lived in Midland her whole life, but she started sewing boat tops in Parry Sound.  She is happy to finally be back in Midland, and we are happy to have her as a part of our team as well!
