A new year, and the first tentative steps.. Job #13

...are being taken..

The component bits for job #13 ("Repair/replace velcro fasteners on sail cover") are on their way - I've gone with the replace option and will change the current velcro tapes (which have softened and degraded due to UV damage and use) for clip buckles (similar to those you get on backpacks)

Bargain...


..couple of metres of replacement webbing


..and the UV resistant thread to cobble the lot together..


..too thick for a domestic sewing machine so I'll be doing this by hand.. the good news is I can do it while sat in front of the TV in the warm!
