The big cover goes on, gear comes off, Winter projects begin!

I have pulled most everything off S V Pinga’s deck and placed the Big Gray Cover. While I did replace the temp gauge and sensor, there is not much to do until Boating Season 2019. So I started on the projects done at home over the winter. Here’s a photo of the new sail cover in progress.

I sew on an ordinary Brother machine from Walmart. This requires complete management of the weight of the piece above all else, but also change the needle often, thread the machine and wind the bobbin perfectly, and match the thread, needle, and pressure to each other. Before every run I test on a small bit of fabric just in case things have gone astray.

Happy holidays!
