Sew it yourself! Sail Cover Kit for Booms to 13' lets you make your own mainsail cover using a premium color of Sunbrella® Marine Grade Fabric. Cover and protect your mainsail when flaked with this throated sail cover. The sail cover fastens under the boom with Twist-Lock fasteners with a snap button finish to provide a clean look and reduce chafe. Secure the cover around the mast with a marine zipper. This sail cover pattern features pre-plotted, long-lasting Sunbrella fabric for easy construction. Approximate construction time is 4 hours.
To determine which sail cover kit is right for your boat, measure the length of the boom (dimension "E") from the mast to its end (not including the mast width). Choose the kit with a length equal to or greater than the length of your boom.
Note: Maximum Boom Length - 13 Feet

How to Make Your Own Throated Sail Cover
See how easy it is to protect your main sail from harsh UV rays. This video will walk you through, step by step, the process to build the Sail Cover Kit.
At first was a little difficult to figure out which lines to cut on. After comparing it to my old cover, I figured it out. Directions weren't great, but the video supplied by Sailrite made it much simpler. I haven't fitted it on my boat yet. Assuming it fits, this was a great buy.
