StayTales™ Telltales are no-worry telltales for sailing dinghies, scows and other sailboats. They are free-spinning and tangle & weather resistant wind indicators. The highly visible colored material is also lightweight and durable. An added advantage is that a StayTales telltale can be removed for trailering to events. Each package includes 6 telltales (four are 11 inches long and two are 17 inches long).
Red, Red-Green, Pink, Teal, Orange, or Purple.
StayTales telltales are easily removal for trailering. We’ve added to the durability with these new features:
Thicker holding washers: We doubled the thickness of the permanent holding washers for added longevity.
UV protection: Each StayTales telltale is now treated with a UV fabric protectant to resist color fading, however, fading and wear with heavy sun exposure is inevitable and not subject to replacement.
