Sew it yourself! Sail Cover Kit for Booms to 16' 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 Common Sense® (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. Only a sewing machine and scissors are needed for 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 length equal to or greater than the length of your boom.
Note: Maximum Boom Length - 16 Feet
Lazy Jack Slits: The mainsail cover pattern instructions include directions for creating lazy jack slits. If required, order an additional 6 feet of 1" acrylic binding tape (or make your own binding using any left-over scrap Sunbrella from the kit) and 3 to 4 Common Sense (Twist-Lock) fasteners for each slit. Ordering 1 square foot of 2-3 oz. leather should accommodate up to 8 slits.
