New Genoa Sail Cover – UK Sailmakers Rock

Just installed the new Genoa sailcover today, and boy this cost me more than I anticipated.

Little old “naive me” learned that a normal Canvas shop should NEVER install a furled sail cover (sunbrella or otherwise) – they simply don’t have the proper sailmaker cross stitch sewing machines to do it right. You’ve seen the Genoas with tattered and flapping canvas, yeah those – they were probably done with a single stitch machine 😦

Ohh well, lesson learned – thanks to Oliver at UK Sails in Venice and Byron Pfeiffer (amazing rigger) who steered me correctly!

Posted ’bout it here on CF: Sailmaker cross stitch machine needed for Genoa sail cover– doh!

New pics – whaddya think?

No more ugly brown canvas on Cerulean!

This was the LAST of the old brown canvas – it wasn’t ugly, just not my tastes…
