UV Protecting Your Furled Sails
by Larry Finley
(Terminal Island, CA)
I sew my own sails, and I built a sock to cover my furled jib.
The sock is 30 feet long, constructed of sunbrella and uses a series of 6 ft. zippers to close the sock while I raise the sock with the jib hallard.
I get a lot of smart ass comments from the other sailors, which are comfortable with their loss of performance and eventual raggedy look of their uv protected jib material.
The raising, lowering and storing of the sock is convenient and I am now buying a larger boat with a new furler and jib, and maybe this time some Velcro instead of zippers.
