sponson cover for Humber destroyer
Hi, I have a new black 6.0 Destroyer rib. Having worked in the caribbean for many years I am used to having a "canvas" cover permanently fitted over the sponsons to protect from UV damage. I haven't seen this in Europe, and over here in Norway the sailmakers just look at me as if I'm mad.
With 20 plus hours of daylight, the boat is going to get pretty hot, can anyone suggest a modern material that is UV, abrasion resistant and colourfast? Plan is to glue velcro just above the rubbing strake, and on the underside of the inboard sponson, then tailor the cover to fit.
Due to a total lack of interest over here, I'm going to have to buy the material in the UK, and pick it up on my next visit.
