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.
