Sewing Machine

I actually think that a sewing machine capable of repairing sails should be on the priority list since it can pay for itself quickly, allowing you to make repairs at sea and sew additional canvas covers for your boat as you cruise. The Pfaff 130's were last built over 20 years ago in Germany and are in high demand as a commercial machine throughout the world, so they now sell for more than six times their original price. I have used mine in a commercial canvas shop and on Mahina Tiare for over 11 years without the machine ever once going out of time or breaking down. After each use I carefully oil and clean the machine, and it is still rust-free. To locate a Pfaff 130, contact Clayton Klinger at Sewing Machine Service, Box 333, Renton WA 98057, 206-255-8673 and tell him that you'd like a machine set up like ours with a handcrank, new motor,

Step Broadseaming and Sewing

When it came time to assemble the sail the excess fabric would be cut away with a hot knife that melted and sealed the edge of the fabric. One edge of each seam would be taped with double-stick tape and stuck to the edge of the adjacent panel until the entire sail was all stuck together. It was then rolled up parallel to the seams and taken to the sewing machine pits for sewing. The sewing machines were sunk into pits so that the working surface of the machine would be level with the floor, which made it easier to sew the seams. For big sails many lofts would use a roller, actually a series of rollers built into an oblong box, which was then tilted toward the machine. With the sail on the box it would slide easily down toward the sewing machine. Once the sail was sewn together, it was ready for second layout.

Procedures For Checking Into A Foreign Country

Make or buy the flag of each country you plan to visit. If you don't have a sewing machine or can't find the countries flag, another solution is to use colored marking pens on a piece of sailcloth with two grommets pounded in the leading edge. Flags by Lynn, 2828 Canon St., San Diego, CA 92106 has the best selection of foreign flags I've ever seen, and can sew up flags that they don't have in stock. Some small countries actually fine boats arriving without the national flag flying. This is called a courtesy flag and should be flown from your sjbarjaaard 6preadar_,a.s.-lQng as you're in the country. The flag of the country your boat is registered in can be flown from the backstay or from a flag staff near your stern. J& j S -

Sail Repair

As is so often the case in sailing, preparation is key, and carrying good sail repair equipment on board will allow you to fix most damaged sails. A sewing machine is nice, but not essential, and your decision about carrying one on board will be determined by the area where you are sailing and the types of repairs you want to be able to do. Basically there are two ways to approach each repair - a quick fix to help you make it to the next port, or a more elaborate job as good as any done by a sailmaker in a sail loft. If you are cruising remote islands, the chances of finding a sailmaker will be equally remote, and you should take a sewing machine on board and learn how to use it. If you are hopping up the East Coast of the United States, leave the machine behind and learn how to do quick patches so that you can make the next harbor safely since this region has lofts aplenty. Either way there are some basic techniques you should learn.


When using sticky-back Dacron for a quick repair on a nylon sail, apply extra-wide patches near the leeches and sew the leech tape back on with a sewing machine or by hand. Because the sail is too big for the small area on board, sketch the repair and come up with a plan before starting, once again working from the center of the sail out toward the edges. If you are planning on doing a proper repair, follow the same procedure for a temporary repair, and then turn the sail over and patch it properly with strips of nylon the same weight as the spinnaker. Cut the nylon and lay double-stick tape down the edges. Change the direction of the patch at each seam to match the thread direction of the fabric. Your temporary repair will hold the sail together allowing you to patch with nylon. Remove the backing on the double-stick tape, lay the fabric down smoothly and then sew the patches with your sewing machine. Once the nylon patches are sewn down, turn the sail over and cut away the temporary...

Canvas And Cushions

To sew it all together, contact Frankie (Bones) in Dow Village, Point Lisas. He has an old fashioned shop with a big single sewing machine and a well worn chair behind it. He has no special marine experience, but he is a whizz at cushions and can make things like biminis it you bring the old one in for him to copy.

Sail Selection

Proper care will greatly increase the lifespan of sails. The mainsail cover must be put on as soon as the anchor is down, and jibs should always be bagged when not hoisted. After each passage we take all of the jibs that we've used ashore, rinse them off if possible and then spread them out on a grassy spot to dry, walk around them checking every seam for stitching that might need to be replaced, and oil the hanks with sewing machine or 3 in 1 oil. We also fold our jibs, and find that they take about a quarter as much valuable storage space than if they are just stuffed into their bags.

Solar Panels

We are completely sold on solar power and often go for over a week at anchor relying solely on one panel to run our cabin lights, radio, 12 volt fan, vacuum and sewing machine. Since we've added an inverter, word processor, camcorder and t.v., we've had to run the main engine to charge batteries some times, so it's time for us to think about adding a second panel We have a small Arco (Siemens) M-5 panel which we leave hooked directly to our batteries when we leave our boat unattended. I prefer this to leaving a battery charger plugged in, since there's less chance of overcharging or shorting our with the 5 watt panel. For larger, multi-panel systems, the Sunselector Charge Controller ( 74 64 at West Marine) will prevent overcharging.

Step Second Layout

Sailmakers roll the sail once it is stuck together so that it can pass through the sewing machine. Sailmakers roll the sail once it is stuck together so that it can pass through the sewing machine.
