Seam Ripper Come Rescue Me

Who knew vlogging could take so much time?  Oh wait, maybe it’s the sewing project I’ve been working on the past few weeks!  Either way, the blog has still been ignored, and I still apologize for that.  And probably will when the next video goes up as well.

While you’re waiting for the thrilling story of our trim (which is about the only lapse between the blog and videos), catch up on all the new things happening, including us finally getting cushions in the forward salon!  Only about a year after we thought we’d originally get them when we first started work on days off.  Although the old cockpit cushions we’d been using in place gave us some kind of padding and fluff under our bums, it was high time to put the real thing in there since all the heavy duty work up there had been completed and there wasn’t the same worry that we’d destroy the fabric right away.

I don’t get anywhere near finishing, and also take a break in the middle to help Matt apply the Kiwi Grip non-skid to our deck, but progress is being made!

  1. Great job, Sailrite has a great video on box cushions that you might want to watch, really good sewing tips on it and tricks. I used Velcro as the zippers tend to rust and seize up and it was way cheaper to do it that way. We chose gray as well from the old blue with small dots on it, every color goes with it and it seems to be the new boat color at the Annapolis boat show!

  2. Please, please, please put a link to the Friday September 19, 2014 – We Bought a new Boat! post on at the top of your blog’s main menu. Trying to find where this boat project started is like looking for a needle in a haystack! Your blog starts where you have a nice boat and ends where you are refurbishing one. There’s nothing to point a viewer to the beginning of your new boat project.
