SAIL BOX??

Anyone know where I should look for PVC pipe to hold my mainsail and jib for my Hobie 16 and what diameter you think it should be? Any ideas what it costs...I heard it''s pretty darn expensive?

Try Home Depot, Lowes, or similar. The bigger the diamter, the easier it will be to roll, but remember you''ve got to carry it or put it somewhere when you''re done. Perforated pipe (like for foundation drains) will be lighter. (You can also drill your own holes if you like.) PVC is the material of choice because it''s cheap. Can''t imagine it would be more than $3 or $4 per foot- if that.

Find yourself an irrigation supply company. I use 2 15" pvc tubes for storing sails, rudders, booms, etc. They were purchased several years ago for about $40.00 for 10''. The end caps were about $25 apiece. The pipe came in two grades; pressure or non pressure. I used non pressure as it is much cheaper. Be sure to keep it painted, as UV will make the pipe brittle. Do not carry heavy items such as anchors in your tube, it will fracture.
