New sail for the gunning dory this year.
I got my Sailrite sail kit all stitched up. I ordered the Shellback dinghy kit. It is just the right size to replace the lateen I used this past season.
The sail construction went very well. My new to me Necchi BU Mira sewing machine handled the job admirably, and for $44 who could complain? Quite a nice heavily built machine from the ’50s when they made stuff good to last.
It is quite cold outside here now so it may, or may not, depending on the weather, be some time until I can get the thing rigged up on the boat.
It will surely be some time before I am able to go sailing to try it out.
At least this sail kit was not too hard to make. I will most probably be doing another some time in the future.
