Not sure we agree with sunbrella causing dust abrasion. Our old Cape Dory
31 came with old sumbrella covers for all teak
save for the toe/rub rails. We love 'em, as we tend to be abjectly lazy when it comes to varnish
. The covers may be 25 years old, and the varnish
underneath looks fine.
We were going to sew up some new covers at our Nova Scotia
home this spring but, obviously, the virus border closing has put the kabosh on that plan. So here we sit in our little northern New Hampshire condo, dreaming about our boat
, which is in Blue Hill, Maine
(14 day quarantine) and wishing we had our big sewing machine
to do the canvas
We're willing to rent a small place to quarantine in Maine
, but we're not sure what life aboard will look like at our marina in Northeast Harbor if we do launch and get our regular mooring
in the harbor.
Anyhow, we digress from the thread. Health
and happy sailing to all of you.
