Complete, new sail rig for Bestway Hydro-Force Marine Pro inflatable boat, also known as the Ozark Trail Marine Pro. Converts your inflatable boat into a fully functional sail boat with steering and the ability to tack upwind. Comes with assembly instructions and how to sail manual. Note: There is a new model of the Marine Pro that lacks motor mount fittings and this kit will not work on that model unless you glue on motor mount fittings yourself.Motor mount fittings are necessary. This is the SailboatsToGo model 2042 sail kit.
Also works on Navigator and Cheyenne boats, Sevylor Caravelles, Intex Mariners and Intex Seahawks. Folds to compact bundle about the size of a set of golf clubs so you can easily put it in the trunk of a small car and store it in a closet or under a bed when not in use.
This is much more than just a sail and a mast. It is a complete sailboat conversion kit. Some other companies will offer a sail and mast, and maybe spars or a boom, and call that a sail kit. You cannot convert your inflatable boat for sailing with just a sail and mast. You need additional parts to hold the mast up, and you need leeboards so you can sail across the wind and tack upwind, and you need convenient steering for control.And you need a way to attach everything to your boat and instructions tailored to your boat. Our sail rig is complete and includes all parts necessary for all these functions.
