Boat Blanket Fabric is an extremely durable, protective Spectropile fabric. This solution-dyed nonwoven, plush polyester has a soft outer surface that acts like the loop side of Velcro®. Sew a strip of the hook side of Velcro to the Boat Blanket and fasten the sleeve around anything needing protection. Boat Blanket is easy to sew and is tough: UV and chemical resistant, and colorfast to withstand marine and outdoor environments.
Boat Blanket fabric is designed for use anywhere a soft, tough cover is required. There is a right and wrong side to this marine fabric, meaning that only the plush soft side should be exposed to the outside. Use Boat Blanket to make fender covers, anti-scorching dividers, pier piling covers, mooring and anchor line chafe guards, webbing sling pads and hiking strap covers.
Note: Boat Blanket is intended for use against gel coat and other hard-coated surfaces. Please use caution when using against painted or thin clear-coated surfaces.
Boat Blanket Cleaning Instructions: We recommend using Iosso Mold & Mildew Stain Remover to clean Boat Blanket material. Soak the material in the cleaner, and then rinse well and let dry.

Really happy with this fabric for fender covers. Looks sturdy and should last. Fabric came quicker than expected (4 days to Canada). Sailrite's video was also helpful in making these. Would recommend this fabric.
Hefty Material Perfect for Fender Covers
This boat blanket fabric is the real deal for fender covers. It is above and beyond the normal fleece that people use. If you want a true fender cover with some heft to it this is it. The downside is it is very difficult or impossible to make covers for smaller offenders as it is too thick and rigid to turn inside out.
Just what I needed to make my fenders covers, nice material and easy to work wth.
Best material ever!
Ive made boat fender covers with each new fender we get, and it is the best! It's everything the description says, it's easy to sew and cut with no fraying, and the video to show how to make it is worth the watch..( I've even used the material to line the trunk of my car)..bottom line: just amazing!
Purchased it for creating boat fender cover, but it has a lot of other applications as well.
Quality fabric for boat fenders
After looking at prices for our large fender, I decided to make it using the boat blanket material. The online tutorial was very helpful and the finished product is terrific. I made this cover for about $75 with substantial fabric versus a much flimsier, ready made cover that would have been closer to $300.
Great product for fender covers and dock line chaffing protectors.
Excellent material for boat fenders
Nice material for a fender
Better material than other brands.
Excellent quality and surprisingly easy to sew with my Ultrafeed.
