Boat Cover

Published date: December 1, 2019
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

The full boat cover protects the boat against the harsh Australian sun. Without the cover the fibreglass becomes oxidised quickly especially the black around the windows.

The cover is easy to put on with a zipper from the mast to the bow. I can do it easily by myself.
It is held down by shock cord to the trailer. The Mainsail is left on the boom and supports the boat cover.

I find only a small amount of dust now when I remove the cover ,rather than bird droppings etc.The boat is now easier to wash

This this probably one of the best improvements I have made on the boat. Cost $930 Australian

    Raised boom Bimini fits with standing room. I added 2 feet to the top of the mast. A very nice young man gave me a piece of his old 26X mast, Not a great fit but the track did line up. Will still be looking for a 26M piece of mast. I have not sailed ...
