Re: Sail Cover Material

Even if you aren't so fond of that (solid) bright blue color you see so often, (and I'm not) there is a reason for using it.
All the colors/dyes used with the acrylic fabric provide different resistance to UV degradation. That color is the best. I've made quite a number of sail covers. the blue one I have is probably 20 years old. It has been re-stitched at least 4 times.
