I decided to install the lifelines. I used dyneema line with pelican hooks. Had to learn how to tie a brummel eye.
I used turnbucles at the forward connection, to allow for tightening the line.
A full shot from the other side. Takes away from the lines of the boat, but safety first!
One more project to check off the list.
I also started on my Stak Pak. I am using the free video on Sail Rite web site as a guide.
Here are the two pieces cut and ready for hemming.
Here is my set up. Using the pool table to lay out the material. I am using an older Singer model 237. Learned how to sew on Youtube!
My stitch looks decent on one side, but not so good on the other.
This is the other side. I can't get the tension right, so it will have to do!
I had a visit from an Iroquois brother today. Chris Cutou from Massachusetts was in So Cal and got to show him around Got Twins! I just wish we could have gone out for a sail. Next time!
