Re: Jerry can & fender covers material?

For jerry can covers, I'd suggest going with Stamoid...

Much less work to sew, as the edges don't have to hemmed like Sunbrella to prevent edges from unravelling, you won't have to deal with the thickness at corners that several layers of Sunbrella can present...

In addition, Stamoid will stow in a package far less bulky than an equivalent cover from Sunbrella, and if you're carrying something like diesel fuel in those jugs, it will be more resistant to staining or 'soaking up' fuel and its aroma than a fabric like Sunbrella...

I've become a big fan of Stamoid, virtually all of the canvas work on my boat employs it, I think my mainsail cover is the only thing still left made from Sunbrella... Covers for jerry cans are a pretty basic box, but for anything more intricate, Stamoid is the way to go, in my opinion...
