Sew it yourself! 40’ Sacrificial Sunbrella Sail Suncover Kit contains everything needed to add a sacrificial sun cover to a furling sail. Protect with the best! Sunbrella is the most popular choice for sacrificial sun covers for its unparalleled durability in sunlight. For boats under 30 feet, use Insignia UV Dacron, a light weight protective choice.
The width of the sacrificial strip should span the exposed edge of the sail when rolled onto the forestay (add 6” for sloppy furling). If the sail is not available for measurement in its furled state, the table below can be used to determine width.
