At the end of 2013 I bought a tarpaulin which has done very well for keeping the sun off Mary. It was a little short leaving a few inches exposed at the end. I am pretty sure I can notice some fading in the paint where exposed.
However I think it has done its job and next year I hope that she will spend most of her time in the water.
With this in mind I would like a full cover that ties down to the toe rail. I would probably use this when at anchor to keep the sun off the deck and hopefully make it a bit cooler inside. This will mostly be for UV as I feel it a good investment in avoiding painting.
I am thinking of having this done in three sections with large zips joining them. Covering foredeck, cockpit and aftdeck. The aft-deck would require that the boom mount is up, I also need to think that at mooring I may be stern to. The foredeck could use the spinnaker poll, from the mast to the bow, to support it.
Does anybody have any suggestions, patterns, existing covers. Also as I am likely to get this done on the east coast (ipswich) would anybody mind if I used their Atalanta as a model. I can’t just nip over and take another measurement.
If a pattern is made I will donate it to the library.
