What is the recommended thickness of the uv sacr cover? Sunbrella Furling cloth is 195 gr/m2 and Sunbrella Plus is about 320 gr/m2. It's for a foresail of 30 m2.

Many thanks

The weight of the suncover depends on the boat/sail size generally standard marine grade Sunbrell is used at 9oz per square yard not Sunbrella plus. You would like your suncover material to breath as well as possible so you would not need the extra coating that Sunbrella plus provides.

Yes, of course it should be a breathable cloth. Silly me. Thanks.
