replacement lifesling pouch

I found a canvas maker in New Jersey who makes replacement pouches out of Sunbrella. He was able to match my canvas, and made a bag that should hold up a lot longer than the original equipment.

I got mine on Ebay, but I understand that the price is better if you contact him directly. His name is Sam Gentile, and his email is

I received my pouch a few days after I ordered it. High quality.
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

Re: replacement lifesling pouch

Having just found an old Sailrite sewing machine, I was pleased to discover that they have lots of projects available for free, including this one for making your own Lifesling pouch.
