This high quality mast bag is made custom for the 49er FX mast from Sunbrella fabric. The bag is deigned to fit the mast when it is up and rigged as well as when it is folded in half for trailering. It features cutouts for the two sets of spreaders, three sets of shrouds and the forstay. The mast bag zips on from the head of the mast to the base. There are four individual separating zippers to allow the cover to be installed when the mast is rigged on the boat. When the mast is up, the cover will be a little long and the bottom of the cover will lie in the bottom of the boat. All of the cutouts have reinforcements for increased life span and durability. The ends of the mast bag feature red vinyl and reflective tape for greater visibility while trailering. This cover will increase the life of your mast and keep halyards from chafing the mast while trailering. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We offer this mast cover in three different fabric choices depending on your needs; the details of each fabric can be found below in the dropdown table.
Below are three photos showing the interior reinforcements at the cutouts. The first photo shows the upper spreader and shroud cutout. The small flap between the two cutouts features Velcro to secure the two flaps to each other. The second photo shows the lower spreader cutout with the red vinyl on the outside. The last photo shows both the lower spreader and lower shroud cutouts. (All photos are clickable for a larger view.)
We also offer spreader covers as an upgrade to completely enclose all of the carbon fiber on this rig. The spreader covers can be used while the mast is fully rigged. The upgrade includes both sets of spreader covers. You can see photos below showing the spreader covers. (All photos are clickable for a larger view.)
