I have had success with standard chrome plated brass toggles (the quarter turn kind "got them at the local sailmaker Hogan sails in Alameda") in place of the zipper. I am not a big fan of zippers but they do sometimes provide a solution.

On the Sunbrella (you are using a hot knife or wood burner right) the edges need sealing or they fray.

Don't forget to install a drain grommet if the bag is hung outside.

Stack Pack? (I would like to see what you come up with) I use a std type mainsail cover and regret not using two layers thick for more protection for my old sails (it works, it looks ok, but the stack pack looks easyer?) .

Best of Luck and happy sewing

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
