Beautiful, high quality mainsail cover

by -

OK, so I don't have a commercial sewing machine but a very nice Singer and my only issue was when sewing multiple layers of fabric for which I used a walking foot and worked slowly. But that was only because of the high quality, marine grade, Sunbrella fabric that came with this kit. This sail cover should last forever! And everything you need is included with the kit. As well as instructions and the on-line videos which were so very helpful. Because they provide enough fabric for any adjustments you might have to make for your particular style of sailboat, I was able to customize my cover accordingly. Now that I've done one, I'm ready for another ;) Also, their customer service is outstanding! Thank you, Sailrite!
