Life is good. Life is very good!
Who knew there was so much to be sewn on a boat? I would have thought curtains, pillows, cushions maybe. On those 3 fronts, the Bayliner is in pretty good shape. The exterior canvas work is where the attention is needed. Not that I know anything about sewing exterior canvas work for anything, this is what I'm working on.
There is much to be learned, but this is a lot of fun! With fabric going for about $24.00/yard, I'm scouring the Internet, the Library and the marina to learn everything I can.
Here's the starting point:
|Port side aft deck canvas|
|Mid aft deck canvas|
|Tools of the trade|
|Aft deck patterning|
Next step - remove the pattern, reassemble the pieces as necessary, transfer to fabric. It's quite an adventure - stay tuned to see how it turns out!
