As we seem to spend a lot of our time travelling and moving our boat – often arriving very late with no time to thoroughly clean the boat and rig – over the winter we decided to make a mast cover. This is what we came up with: it has a full length zip in three pieces so the cover can be put on even if you have kept the rigging and spreaders on the mast. The spreaders also have custom-made covers which seal with Velcro so that the mast, rigging and spreaders can be kept clean and protected on the road whilst you ship your beloved around!
We only made one cover initially (we obviously thought we might be the only time-pressed travellers on the planet…!) but no sooner had we got hold of ours then we sold it. We have a few more on order so if you want to give your mast the love and care it deserves get your order in now! The cover also comes with a lovely red tail flag so you can comply with some towing laws at the same time!
