Sew it yourself! Sacrificial Sail Sun Cover Kit 80’ 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 lightweight protective choice.
The width of the sacrificial strip should span the exposed edge of the sail when rolled onto the forestay (add 6 inches for sloppy furling). If the sail is not available for measurement in its furled state, the table below can be used to determine width.
