New From Taylor Made Products:

Boat Covers for Sailboats



            GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – March 20, 2008 – Taylor Made Products has designed a line of boat covers to accommodate small sailboats.

The new covers come in a wide range of choices for sailboat owners. Options include covers for when the mast is off the boat or when the mast is laid down on the boat. When the mast is in the upright position, a selection is available with a fabric boot that velcros around the base. Also available is a cover that protects the bottom of the hull while trailering. It extends over the top edge of the gunnel for a secure fit. All sailboat covers can be used for storage or trailering.

Constructed from Taylor Made’s patented Hot Shot fabric, the 6-ounce acrylic-coated polyester is water, mildew and UV resistant and is durable enough to stand up to the hottest temperatures. The sailboat covers come in a choice of Pacific Blue or Gray.

“Until now, sailboat owners have not had many choices in boat covers to help protect their investments,” said Dave Karpinski, vice president of marketing, Taylor Made Products. “We now offer a range of options for a variety of sailboats, in one of our most durable fabrics.”
