Mainsail Cover

Look what arrived the other day: a mainsail cover kit from Sailrite. I was impressed with speed of the delivery; it arrived less than a week from when I ordered it!

Even with all the last minute things we have been doing, I have managed to get it sew together. I just have to do the final fit and the fasteners.

My trusty old "Anker" sewing machine has paid for itself many times over in the 30+ years I have had it. And yes kids, it's going on the boat with us.

I can't believe your taking your sewing machine with you, but if anyone takes a sewing machine on a sailboat, it's you. And I bet it takes up less space than the Captain's tools!

Lots of cruising boats take these special sewing machines called "Sailrites" with them because they can use them to repair sails and covers.
