Sailing Hardware & Gear

Sailing Hardware and Gear   

Explore the open sea and sail to destinations you've never visited. You'll be able to relax knowing you have all the boat parts and accessories to make repairs to your sailboat if needed.    

What Types of Sailing Fittings and Rigs Are Available?   

Choose sailing rigging and fittings such as stainless steel swivel snap shackles suitable for multiple marine applications. Rigging wire is a must-have to help support standing rigging such as a mast. Additionally, you'll find cleats, yacht rope and other sailing hardware.    

What Sailing Tools Should You Have Onboard?   

A vinyl repair kit and adhesive putty are important sailing tools and repair equipment every sailor needs. Unless your boat has an engine, a torn sail could leave you stranded. You'll need other sailing gear like snap fasteners and screws as well as a leather sewing palm, needles and thread.    

How Often Should You Replace Boat Sails?   

Windstorms and normal wear and tear cause a sail to deteriorate. Some sails become brittle and crack over time or UV protection peels off the sail. Moreover, a sail that hasn't dried out thoroughly before storing it in a bag can develop mould and mildew. If you see any of these signs of damage, you should replace your boat sails or repair your existing ones.
