Winter Project: Marine Canvas Repair

By October 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Boat owners who put their boats into storage for the winter can use those months to get some maintenance done that may be hard to get to during the sailing season. Have any holes or tears in your dodger, sail cover, or other marine canvas? Winter's a good time to take on such projects - and save some money by doing it yourself.

Sewing heavy marine canvas is usually a real chore, however, and requires either an expensive heavy-duty sewing machine or lots of tedious hand sewing. Fortunately, a fabric adhesive is available that is very effective on Sunbrella and other marine canvas and that makes it an easy job. Read the product review and process steps here.
