Rudder covers that fit on the rudders of the Hobie® 14, 16, 17, 18, Hobie® Getaway, Hobie® Wave Club, Hobie® Miracle 20, and the Hobie® Wave Classic. (Will likely fit: Hobie® Performance EPO, EPO2, or EPO3 as well) The covers is made of a UV stable carpet (similar to dashboard covers). The inside is fuzzy to provide a soft lining which protects your rudder from damage. The outside is much denser and more robust to protect the rudders while in storage or transit. The rudder cover buckles on with a strap making it easy to put on and adjustable. The rudder covers we offer are dark blue.

The crew hard at work. _____________________ Right: The birth of @sunbrella boat covers. Our covers are designed in AutoCAD, drawn on our @autometrix plotter cutter, and hand cut with hot knives to ensure the cover doesn't fray, meaning you get to enjoy the full 10-15 year lifespan of the Sunbrella cover. (Colors shown: Jet Black, Toast, Pacific Blue) _____________________ Left Front: #force5 top cover (Royal Blue) // #lasersailboat top cover (Charcoal Grey) // #force5 top cover (Charcoal Grey). All 3 covers are made in our polyester fabric, which is a 600 denier solution dyed woven polyester with a urethane backing. Lifespan: 3-7 years. _____________________ Left Back: The pocket that holds the bungee around your boat's perimeter starts as long rectangles of fabric that are sewn into one long continuous strip. (Sunbrella Pacific Blue; Sunbrella Cadet Grey) // #sunfishsailboat top cover (Sunbrella Cadet Grey) // Custom Project: wine fermentation covers (Top Gun, AwnTex, WeatherMax) _____________________ Call and order yours today! #sailing #sailmaking #sailmaker #boat

Jeanneau 37 Genoa dragon graphic project took 10+ hours in total work from design, cutting, prep, and layout. It was time consuming and there was definitely a sharp learning curve but it turned out perfectly and we are ready for the next sail design challenge. #sailing #sailmakers #jeanneau37 #genoa
