Dinghy Cover Material Choices
First things first
There is currently a plethora of wonderful high tech names flooding the dinghy covers market !
However it is our experience that the vast majority of visitors to this site would prefer to know ‘what it is and what it does’
With that in mind and after many years and conversations, we’ve kept simple.
Double coated PVC Polyester (460 GSM)
Super durable and higher tear strength than most standard Dinghy cover PVC’s. Smooth wipe clean finish that will give many years of service to your boat ! Default colour is currently blue
PU Coated Nylon (230 GSM)
For dinghy undercovers only, durable nylon with a polyurethane finish. Lightweight and easy to use. In mid blue
Polyestercotton Canvas (460 GSM)
Not as colourfast but maintains its strength and has unique breathable characteristics, that will protect your sailing dinghy better than any other material. The cotton fibres in the polycotton blend swell when they become wet, making the fabric more waterproof. Conversely, as it dries, the fibres shrink allowing moisture to evaporate away from the boat.
Solution dyed Acrylic Canvas (320 GSM)
Breathable, with a softer less abrasive finish than Polyester alternatives. Will not rot, shrink or fade . A durable quality material with the highest colour fastness rating available. At the moment we haven't given it a high tech name but watch this space available in blue, green or beige.
