Re: Jerry can & fender covers material?

In keeping with the original question in this thread, does anyone have a pattern for jerry can covers? Or photos and examples of what they did? I am also looking for a pattern for dinghy chaps.

Jack, I cannot answer for Magnolia, but for us, we are taking our C34 down to Mexico in 2015. I’ve been told that over time, the sun down there is very harsh on plastic/rubber/hypalong. Our boat has a pretty small fuel tank and the distances between fuel stops is great coupled with inconsistent winds means a fair amount of motoring. My plan is to strap a pair of jerry cans to my Stb lifelines at approximately midships. I’ve been thinking that I might strap them to a fender board and clamp that to my stanchions for better support and stability.
