Boat Blanket is a highly protective material made from solution-dyed polyester. It’s extremely tough yet soft and is naturally resistant to sun damage, rot and chemicals, so it’s especially ideal for use in marine applications. This ultra-tough material is gentle enough to be placed against gel coat and other hard-coated surfaces, so it’s commonly recommended for fender covers, anti-scorching sun strips, pier piling covers, trailer bunk covers, boat covers and webbing sling pads. Sailrite® offers Boat Blanket material by the yard in a variety of colors. If you aren’t sure if Boat Blanket is the right fabric for your application, order a sample today.
Boat Blanket is a top choice for sewing your own protective covers, especially fender covers. In fact, Sailrite offers Boat Blanket as part of our Boat Blanket Fender Cover Kit, which includes polyester thread and instructions for sewing fender covers. Make sure to use caution if you plan to use Boat Blanket against any painted or thin clear-coated surfaces.
This material is incredibly easy to sew and has a plush outer surface. When you pair it with polyester hook, you can create all kinds of easy fasteners, closures and designs. The UV- and chemical-resistant makeup of this spectropile fabric means it’s especially well-suited to many applications. It’s also highly abrasion resistant, which is why it’s a top-notch choice for DIY boat fender covers. Sailrite offers a full selection of in-depth DIY guides, videos and marine sewing supplies.
