Creation Covers has started manufacturing padded bags for carrying around your model yacht rig. The design is standardised for the DF65 and the DF 95 now that the 65 has the new A+ rig.
I have a local sailor called Alan, who has been assisting me in developing the design of the rig bags and materials used. The bags are padded with 6mm foam and have a waterproof outer in PU polyester. The edge is bound in webbing and the bag opens out flat for easy access to the 4 pouches for the different rig sizes. The opening is a 10mm wide plastic moulded zip so that it won’t corrode and there is a handle on top to carry the bag.
The features of the design which work well are the clear pockets, as these allow you to see what rig is inside. Also the handles are positioned to keep the bag fairly balanced while you carry it around. Also, the decision to include padding was to protect the rigs and sails as well as possible.
There is also an upgraded bag in breathable Weathermax outer if required.
