As standard we sew all of our Covers in a V-138weight UV stabilized bonded and lubricated polyester thread.
Teflon (Tenara) stitching is available as an option for an extra charge. Tenara brand Teflon thread by the W.L. Gore company has a 15 year warranty in the sun and will not fade or rot due to UV or chemical exposure. It is the stitching that will be the first to fail on Covers sewn in polyester thread. If you live North of latitude 33 and your boat lives at the beach or in a Marina, Tenara thread will definitely pay off. If you are in Townsvile or Cairns definitely add Tenara thread to your new Manders Sails Cover. If you are in Tasmania, don’t worry about it.
A cruising sailor typically favours longevity over performance and does not need the extra speed achievable with exotic materials.
We make Sails for all types of Yachts Catamarans and Dinghies, Trampolines for Catamarans New or Repairs, Replacement Shade Sails and Repairs.
