VX One Mast Up peaked top cover, designed and manufactured in the USA.
Features of this cover:
This cover is peaked so that it goes over the keel and wraps around the mast at the height of the keel
There is a large truck vinyl reinforcement at the top of the keel to support the weight to the cover
This cover is designed to DRAIN very well (better than the standard mast-up cover!)
4 cutouts: one for the mast, two for the shrouds, and one for the forestay
There is a zipper that goes from the mast cutout, which is closed with a tall 6" collar, to the starboard shroud cutout. The zipper is covered with a flap to protect it from UV damage. There are Velcro flaps that close off from the shroud and forestay cutouts to the edge of the cover, as well as buckles at the bottom edge to connect the 1/4" bungee at the hem.
Cover wraps all the way under the bottom of the transom
Cover extends down the hull of the boat about 6 inches from the gunwale providing a good seal
Optional Mesh Drains / Vents wrap under the back lip of the transom providing air flow and allowing your boat to drain if needed
This cover also has a vent forward of the mast with a flap that prevents water from getting in.
Well reinforced over all chafe areas (shroud bases, spin blocks, bow, aft corners, pintles, and jib track on foredeck)
Strap under the boat at the transom that runs through webbing loops on the transom flap to keep it secured so it will not blow off (this strap is included on all covers even without the straps upgrade)
Webbing loops can be found approximately every 3 feet around the cover for you to create your own tie-down system to fit your needs. If you would like the webbing loops replaced with adjustable 1 inch webbing straps with quick release buckles select "Strap" in Upgrades
Bungee in the hem of the cover allows the cover to fit well and seal out dirt and water
The cover doesn't need to be tied down to stay on in moderate conditions with the bungee alone
You can add straps and/or reflective tape in the upgrade menu found above. We offer this cover in three different fabric types, look over the fabrics in the drop down chart below.
Putting a tennis ball on the top pintle will help extend the life of your cover by distributing the load of your cover at that chafe point! (even if you don't do this we have reinforced this point on your cover with heavy duty truck vinyl so the pintle will not punch through it.
Product fits perfectly out of the box. All critical areas are reinforced and a good deal of thought seems to have gone into the design and construction. Very happy with the product. Highly recommendedRC
