Overall Covers

Overall Covers

The Overall Cover is sometimes referred to as the winter cover. It fits over the gunwhale cappings & down the sides of the boat by a few inches. By doing this it protects all the woodwork.

It is secured by cords that are supplied with the cover which tie under the boat. Because of this, it cannot be used whilst on a mooring.

Some people rig mast crutches to use the mast as a ridge pole. Others go for elaborate strong-back arrangements.

Open Drascombes - As with the mast down cover, we also offer a Mast-up option, the difference is that the mast-up version comes with a collar to fit round the main mast & a cut-outs to go round the shrouds & forestay. In doing this you can leave the Mast up whilst on the trailer.

Cabin Drascombes - We can supply an overall cover for the Longboat Cruiser and Coaster, however please note, these are mast down versions, where the mast is stowed in a mast crutch in place of the mizzen mast.

  • PVC/Poly:
    This is a heavy duty PVC on Polyester, which is easy to wipe down and keep clean.

  • Weathermax 80:
    This is a new material to us, and we are pleased with the look and feel of it. The Weathermax 80 has several benefits over the PVC, it is lighter to handle, more flexible when taking off and putting on your boat, has a UP Factor of 50 and mildew resistant, so would be ideal for sprayhoods, tents and covers. The colour choices are Navy (Standard) Forest Green, White and Burgundy are available at a surcharge of £50.00. The life-span of each colour is much the same.
