    Sewmanship - New Curtains and Pillows - Part 1

    Reducing Winter Rain Stains

    I imagine that many sailors in rainy areas probably have heard of this, and several years ago a friend introduced it to me. Simple idea and cheap, and it works.

    Sewmanship 6--Repairing Upholstery Fabric; Singer Model 15-91

    It's a tribute to the bulletproof velour upholstery that Ericson used in 1985 that in many boats it survives and even flourishes. My zippers remain sound. The cloth is robust and unstained. Even so,...

    Exhaust anti-siphon hose

    Yup the marelon will work just fine for that. It just wasn't as compact and conforming for where I wanted to put it.

    Supporting your Mystic ladder on the hull.

    Steven, Your idea is novel, simple and effective I'm sure. Certainly there is never a shortage of fenders on any of our boats, congrats on dreaming
