What a Difference!
Andrew Campbell/Brad Nichol, Members of the US Sailing Team Alphagraphics and 2008 Olympic Representative
"On our Star Boat, we always apply Sailkote directly into the mast track and boom track of our spars...then onto the bolt ropes on the luff and foot of the mainsail.
We also apply it inside the jib zipper along the luff so it runs smoothly up and down the forestay on the downwind runs without bunching up.
What a difference!"
World Champions Use Mclube!
Bora Gulari, 2009 International Moth Class World Champion
"With all of the linkages on the Moth, friction is the enemy! Slowly sapping performance from the boat - McLube SailKote and One Drop used in the right places will always keep my boat flying high.
Integral Part of Race Preparation
Just a note to let you know how much we like your product. McLube has become a routine part of our race preparation.
It makes all the moving parts function smoothly and efficiently. This is great for increasing confidence and positive expectation.
Even around the house now I frequently go get the can out of the boat trailer to attend to squeaky hinges, sticky tools and stuff.
Can’t Sail Without It!
dmckesson, MX-Ray Sailor
"Here are some pix from the Leukemia Cup Regatta - it was a wild ride and earned me the nickname of ‘Mad Maxx’!!
Let me state once again what a great product y’all make(Sailkote). I use it on everything that slides or rolls...I cannot imagine sailing without it!"
Chris Larson: Sailkote makes the difference!
Chris Larson, 2009 Melges 24 World Champion
"McLube SailKote worked great on our mainsail battens.
We sprayed both the battens and batten pockets in order to help them pop through on each and every tack and jybe.
There is a difference."
We Sailkoted our spinnakers and what a difference!
James Spithill, America’s Cup Helm and World Champion
"We won the 2005 Melges 24 Worlds because we trained hard, sailed well, and we were very prepared.
One of the advantages we and our training partner, Dave Ullman, enjoyed was that we had all of our racing spinnakers Sailkoted with McLube so they would not absorb any water, would set and gybe much smoother and easier, and fly much lighter even in the wet conditions. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with the results."
Use It Anywhere!
"This is a picture from the 2007 Pinata Regatta in Puerto Penasco Sonora Mexico. My wife laughs at me when I go around the boat the morning of race day with my can of SailKote.
I put it all over the Hobie-18 and on also on our big boat when we race that (a S2 7.9 monohull) further south in the Sea of Cortez.
I love your stuff...and even use it on my guns....hence the second photo."
Sailkoting our spinnaker is boathandling gold!
Anthony Kotoun, Olympian and multi-class national champion
"Coating our Olympic 49er spinnaker with McLube Sailkote is simply boathandling gold. By Sailkoting our kite we can hoist sooner and faster, gybe smoother easier, and take down later all thanks to McLube Sailkote.
The advantage Sailkoting our spinnaker gives us is undeniable. We don't have the resources to have new sails all the time, so when one of our kites gets a little tired we spray a light coating of Sailkote on it, and it brings it back to life again. The Sailkote definitely helps to protect the resin in the sail cloth, and greatly minimized wear and tear...literally."
