Building Our Own Custom Stack Pack

There’s nothing for me to sand or paint right now, so it must be time to sew!

Two big items we need done before leaving the marina are making a new mainsail cover and an awning for the cockpit. Tackling the hardest one first, I went with the sail cover. Since we were starting from scratch and yours truly was doing the work, we decided to go with a stack pack, where the cover never fully comes off, but instead is unzipped to allow the sail in and out. I’ve never attempted anything like this before, but luckily Sailrite makes a very helpful step by step video on building one. We’re making a few tweaks, so ours won’t be exactly the same, but it has helped me with the most important parts.

Also in this episode, we spend a little quality time with our friends Jeremy and Courtney of s/v Teho. We’d gotten to know them at the marina just after the new year, and were now able to reconnect after they’ve arrived back from the Bahamas. Their stay in Indiantown is a short one though, so we made the most of it with a night out to Waterway Cafe and Rocco’s Tacos in Palm Beach.

Cheers from the WATER!!
