Stu-- I appreciate your prompt help! I trust you reached your destination safely despite texting while driving. :) And of course, the advice that I want both a sail and a boat cover is key as I move along in my search, so merci again.

Apologies for being so cryptic... Yes, Matthew is correct. I was in the car at the time, but didn't want to lose this thread.
My boat, an Atkins Dary Thomas Tops'l cutter, was built in Port Townsend in 1993, and fitted out with Port Townsend Foundary bronze, Carol Hasse sails and an Artful Dodger sail cover and full boat cover.
The boat cover is the most complicated piece of fabric construction I've ever encountered, owing to all the traditional rigging of the boat. Three pieces, vents, chafing gear... goodness. I'll post a picture.
Your boat will be substantially simpler I'm sure.
And yes, you want a boat cover and a sail cover.
You may experience some sticker shock, but there aren't many things you can do that will enhance the longevity and preserve the beauty of such a boat than to provide this sort of protection.
I have no idea whether they need proximity to your boat to do a proper job... may be a show stopper.
best of luck in your search.
