Hi, I need to replace my sprayhood; any recommendations please? Am aware that this question has been asked previously, but no response back then... Season starts soon enough and will be chilly without one!

Hi Rick
I bought my Swift (Bebop) in August 2016 and the spray hood was made by C&J Marine. It is shown on their website. Not sure what the cost was. Recently bought a mainmast (stack pack) from Jeckells Sailmakers and they done me a really good deal compared with C&J, so may be worth asking them.
Regards, David

Hi Rick,
I just picked up my new sprayhood from www.starcovers-leeds.co.uk
Local to me so took my old cover which they used as a template, and I'm reusing my old frame. Cost £325 cash, I've got to check the fit and mark the exact position for the holes which he will then punch for me.
I wont be doing that until 'The Beast from the East' has been and gone again!

Checking C&J Marine, they want £858 including frame :-o

Hope this helps,
