How to Make a Foredeck Sail Bag from a Sailrite Kit
I was happy with the purchase. It is easy to assemble, looks good. Thanks!
Loved Fabricating This Foredeck Bag!
Just completed my fourth "kit" in three months of owning Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1 machine. Eventual plan is to reupholster cabin settee cushions aboard our sailboat. In addition to providing useful items for our boat, these kits are excellent building blocks for developing necessary skills to accomplish a more complex sewing project. Quality tools, materials and kit instructions all help in making these projects a pleasure to complete with accessories to improve the looks or our boat. Sailrite personnel are also extremely responsive in answering questions when needed.
Fun, and helps deter the geese...
So, the videos were spot on. The bag looks great. We had fun making this as a family. The swinging bag even helps keep geese off our boat. A few comments. It can be hard to stuff the sail into the bag at first. It takes practice. I wish there was a video showing some technique there. Maybe Sailrite could make the opening slightly larger? In any case, any time lost putting the sail in the bag is more than made up for when it is time to take the sail out of the bag. Fun. My daughter sewed the Sailrite logo on. You have to go slow with that to get the stitch to be a good even curve. Still, no complaints. This makes the boat look even better. Fender covers and this sail bag are great single evening sewing projects that anyone can do. It is hard to mess these up. Have a strong sewing machine.
