Re: Mainsail Cover Mast Closure

I've sailed boats that had grommets at the mast end of the sailcover, and you simply laced it up and tied it off like a shoe. Velcro seems to offer a lot of downside. Our current cover has a hefty zipper that looks like it should last another five years.

Zipper and simple lanyard is the KISS way to go. Velcro will become dirt collection monster
