Re: Mainsail Cover Mast Closure
I don't like velcro for closures because it collects spiderwebs, lint, general crap, and because of this starts to fail from the moment it is installed. On our MS cover we have a zipper with a webbing strap sewn into the top cuff of the cover and a nylon snap release buckle, - simple and looks good and works, but I think that this is overkill. If I need to make another sail cover, I would go with simple lanyard closure at the top cuff. zip it up, pull the lanyard tight and tie it up.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
