Sew it yourself! 40’ UV Insignia 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, but the fabric is heavy. Insignia UV Dacron is a much better choice for boats under 30 feet, as it is lighter.
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.
Note: Install UV Insignia on new or nearly new sails. Wrinkles make proper installation difficult.
Sail Preparation Tip: For all sails, especially older sails, it is always highly recommended to thoroughly clean and rinse the sail for the best adhesion and to avoid any dirt trapped under the adhesive which could cause mildew. We recommend cleaning the sail with Iosso Mold & Mildew Stain Remover prior to any adhering.
Select the proper kit by adding the sail's leech and foot edge dimensions.
