Winter Covers

Our Original Boom-Tent Sailboat Winter Cover

As one of the premiere designers and originators of the Boom Tent Sailboat Winter Cover we have spent a great deal of time upgrading and perfecting our present-day product. We now have the pattern for almost every production sailboat ever produced. We protect your sailboat, its precious wood toe rail, and the Awlgrip / Painted Hull, or teak decks from the elements be it tropical UV damage to harsh snow & ice accumulation and wind. Protect your investment with a custom made winter cover.

We have been making our "boom-tent" style sail boat winter cover for over 20 years and have hand-measured an extensive archive of patterns. Because of this vast database, you can find our covers up and down the eastern seaboard, throughout the Midwest, and even in Alaska and Canada too!


About our Sailboat Winter Covers

In brief, The Canvas Store Sailboat Winter Cover is designed for mast-up winter storage. It can either cover your sailboat down from the boom to inside the toe rail OR over the toe rail by 6-8 inches. Based on your geographic location and how you winter your boat (in water or on the hard) we have the perfect solution for you.

We use nothing but the best and toughest materials. Our thread, zippers and especially our fabrics are why we guarantee our covers for the life time of the ownership of our boat. We use "Top Gun" fabric, a marine-grade polyester woven fabric with a rubberized finish. This fabric is entirely water resistant but our cover design is NOT air-tight so the shrink-wrap-moldy-swamp-effect come spring-time is not an issue.

For ease of installation, this cover comes in 3 sections. The forward section gets securely tied to the bow and terminates at the mast creating the perfect pitch for liquids to sheer right off. The "Mid-Section" has a mast collar not unlike a main sail cover. This middle section extends to and terminates somewhere mid-boom where the zippers align with your life line gates for easy access port and starboard. Additionally, in the third and aft section, we provide a stern access zipper from topping lift to transom for easy aft entry. Whether you just cover your boat to inside the toe rail or over, we have collared cutouts for all your boats shrouds, and stays. Although we have made many Winter Covers and most likely your boat-make over the years (and we have the patterns to prove it) EVERY cover is a custom-made cover and we will work with you to accommodate your boat's variances be it davits, radar poles or ladders etc.
