Take care of your roller furling sails with cover kits from Sailrite®. You can sew a custom sleeve furling cover or spinnaker sock or add a sacrificial suncover to your roller furling sail, all for an economical price. These relatively low-cost covers for your furling sails help you protect your expensive sail investment and extend the life of the components for long-term performance. All of our kits are equipped with high-performance, UV-resistant fabric to shield your sails from sun and weather damage.
Add a suncover to your furling sails with a Sacrificial Suncover Kit from Sailrite. Choose from Sunbrella® or UV Insignia Dacron® fabric for long-term performance in the sun and other harsh elements. These kits are available for sails in a variety of sizes and include everything you need to sew a sacrificial fabric strip along your sail’s leech and foot edges including polyester thread, basting tape, spray adhesive and in-depth instructions. Sunbrella offers unparalleled UV protection, but UV Dacron also offers great protection with less weight. Choose Insignia UV Dacron for boats under 30 feet to save on weight.
We also offer complete sleeve furling cover kits made with long-lasting Sur Last® fabric as well as spinnaker sock kits featuring several yards of Ripstop nylon fabric. Want to change your hanked-on sail to roller furling? Use one of our luff tape conversion kits. These kits come with everything you need to prepare a sail for a furling unit, including thread, basting tape, hardware, twine and needles. Retrofitting a modern furling or reefing system can help make your sailboat more efficient and convenient to use.
