I am about to sew a new boom bag, using the old one as a template, as it is well thought out and works nicely. Sadly, it is the wrong colour and getting a little old now (20 years).
I have black Sunbrella cloth and I have a Singer 291U3 light industrial sewing machine
which can handle this job in its sleep.
Now I need to choose a thread. I am working from the Sailrite
site, which seems to have the best prices and options.
It does look like Tenara is the way to go, but I cannot decide if I should go with black, white or clear thread.
Also, it seems that the Tenara only comes in VERY big spools (8 oz), whereas I can get Profilen on a 4 oz spool, which I think should be plenty.
Finally, I am not sure about thread size. The Profilen only seems to come in V-92, whereas the Tenara comes in V-92 and V-138. I assume the V-92 will be strong enough, but I really am not sure.
Can anyone guide me on this one?
