Morris Minor Pick Up Cover – Made to measure (24th November 2017)

We love our work at RB SAILS. And  much of our work is nothing to do with sails! Working on this lovely classic Morris Minor pick up to make a cover to the customers bespoke requirements was such a pleasure. We have the facilities to keep the vehicle inside while we do all the fabric work including measuring up, patterns and manufacturing and fitting the cover. The Customer chose this nice shade of grey which goes really well with the Morris Minor blue. At the back we added a clearview PVC window with zips (not original but a nice improvement) and leather straps so it can be rolled up and down. If you have any custom covers or vehicle cover requirements then contact us on 01736 754659.

Boat Dodgers and Covers for Bluefin Charters, St Ives. (31st October 2017)

These custom printed dodgers really help to make the boat stand out in the harbour. If you want to charter a fishing boat then visit www.stivesboattrips.com.

BOAT COVERS, Made to order in Cornwall. (12th October 2017)

RB Sails are always busy making boat covers. This one was for Tom and Dawn. The boat had no rear cover and the requirements were for maximum coverage, removable and roll up sides and back, folding roof and removable Stainless steel tubing so the whole canopy could be easily stored. We designed and bent the stainless steel tubing, and also added inserts so they could be easily stored. All fittings were top of the range Stainless steel boat fittings. The fabric chosen was a burgundy coated Acrylic Canvas with clear view PVC window fabric.

Now is a good time of year to book your new boat cover as the winter months are generally quieter. If you have any requirements then call us on 01736 754659.
