Clear useful text for sail repairs or re-cutting and cleaning

by -

A good guide to using machine or hand stitching for sail repairs or even modifying the cut of the sail. A small section on sail cleaning also is included with a total of 70 pages plus a few pages for notes. One or two of the illustrations could maybe be a little clearer and perhaps labelled more but a well written, clear text that is encouraging me to " have a go".
