CRADLE COVER

The Doyle Cradle Cover™ was developed by Doyle Sailmakers in response to the Mooring's desire for a StackPack that could be easily removed from the main. With a Cradle Cover™, if the main needs repairs, a new main can be put on and the Cradle Cover™ can put back on.

Today's boats are more performance oriented with big mainsails and Doyle offers the perfect mainsail handling solution, the Cradle Cover™. Drop your halyard, a quick zip, and you are finished for the day.

Even if you don't zip the Cradle Cover™ the sail is mostly covered and protected from the sun. Great peace of mind for those people who are unlikely to put on their sail cover when they stop for lunch at a quiet little anchorage. Reefing your sail is even easier as the excess sail cloth under the reef points is contained by the cover and there is no need for intermediate ties.

NO NEED FOR SAIL TIES...

Cradle Cover™ is a fully battened mainsail with lazy jacks and cover that opens automatically to accept the sail as it is lowered. The cover and lazy jack system neatly flakes and holds the sail as it is lowered or reefed. The folds at the foot of a reefed mainsail also lie neatly in the Cradle Cover™, eliminating the need to tie off the excess fabric with ties.

EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR MAIN...

With the sail completely stowed, the Cradle Cover™ system presents a neat appearance and automatically protects the sail from harmful UV rays.
