Custom Boat Covers :

We make covers for boats of all shapes and sizes. Following the Harken tradition of top quality and attention to detail, each cover is individually cut and sewn using the finest fabrics is available.

We take pride in our craftsmanship. All seams are triple layered and double stitched. Inside seams are overcast for additional strength and to prevent fraying. All stress and wear areas are reinforced

Boats must be on-site in Pewaukee Wisconsin for exact measurement.

All covers (with the exception of our cockpit cover) feature 10” skirts that end below the gunnel edge and secure with 3/16”sewn-in shockcord for a snug fit. Heavy-duty nylon webbing tabs with eyelets for tie downs are sewn into the gunnel seams so no metal touches your boat.

HeadSail Sac & headsail bag

Headsail Sack

Abrasion from dirt, mildew from rain and UV rays from sunlight are all harmful to sailcloth. If your boat has roller furling, you can just wind up the headsail, and provided it has a leach cover or a zippered sleeve that muffles the headsail, leave it permanently attached to the forestay. Hanked-on headsails, however, must always be removed and stored below. Unless of course, you make a headsail sac. For less than $100, this sac protects your headsails and frees up valuable space below.

Made of 100% acrylic (i.e. Sunbrella), the sac can be either rectangular in shape (easiest) or a triangle. To determine the size, tightly flake the headsail while connected to the headstay. From the clew, roll the sail, much like rolling a sleeping bag, and tie with a bungee cord. Now measure the width, length and height, allowing extra for a slack, but not Sample of single fold and double wide hem.

baggy, fit. To these measurements add extra for a 16mm (5/8") seam width across the top and back, 38mm (1-1/2") double wide hem on the bottom,

and a 25mm (1") single fold on the front for a zippered (or Velcro) closure. (I prefer using either material to snaps to achieve a better water-resistant “seal.”) Finished size for a small headsail is typically 91cm (36") on the headstay, 86cm (34") top width, 132cm (52") bottom width, and 81cm (32") back. Add 20cm to 25cm (8" to 10") to all measurements for a large headsail.

To assemble, sew the top and back seam, inserting a webbing loop with a stainless-steel ring into the top back corner. Turn under the bottom edge 38mm (1-1/2"), then turn under again, and sew along the top and bottom edges. Turn under 25mm (1") along the front opening, and sew on the plastic zipper or Velcro. For reinforcement, and to reduce chafe from the headstay, sew cowhide or webbing along the top collar. Sew Velcro along the bottom edge or fasten snaps, spaced every 15cm (6") or so. To bag your sail, close the front and bottom, attach the halyard shackle and take up the slack.
