NC Business Highlight: Body Helix

In May, I had the exciting opportunity to work with NC business Body Helix! This company provides high-quality compression wraps for athletes of all kinds.

According to the Body Helix website (, their products help both reduce inflammation + increase circulation to the area hugged by one of their compression wraps. This means that Body Helix wearers benefit from less injuries + faster recoveries!

Body Helix wraps are fabricated with non-slip and ultra-stretchy material (no adjustments or restricted movements)! The company’s website states, “You can continue to play your game, your way, without limits.”

The compression fabric is made with closed-cell technology; this means that Body Helix wraps don’t trap sweat or bacteria.

The T-top’s frame is designed to fit snugly around the boat’s console; the hand-sewn canvas provides shade from the bright sun. Each T-top is hand-welded for strength with anodized aluminum before being polished and painted.

T-top designs by Blue Water Marine Products often include practical additions like fishing rod holders (see below)!

Bobby is passionate about meeting and exceeding his customers’ expectations.

β€œ[I love] being able to create exactly what customer envisioned. There is nothing more rewarding than having the customer drive up when the boat is on the lot -they are so excited. That does it for me!”

Choosing a custom-designed T-top through Blue Water Marine Products over a stock one is beneficial for customers who want a strong, durable T-top made with the best materials available. However, the greatest advantage in working with the Atkinson family is their integrity.

“We are honest, we are experienced, [and] we offer value in our products because of the quality of materials we use. Our workmanship is good and we stand behind our work.”
