I've been so happy to find Sailrite, we watched the videos and then I created a boatcover for our 36 foot Trawler despite being 12o0 miles away from her!    Sharing photos, we took 80 yards of fabric (only 1/2 yard was remaining at the end of the process).  I sewed the sheets together, we took it to Seattle and fit it with clamps on the boat, flew it back to Alaska and I sewed merrily away for 2 weeks.  I packed up my ultrafeed and 100 pounds of boat cover and toted the whole thing back down.  Finished product, fabulous.  We put sandbags on the bottom, I created doors, put vents and poles in.  Dry as a bone, I didn't think I could do it, but my husband thought I could.  I've tidied it up alot since these photos and the end result is awesome.

Hi Joanne,
Sounds like quite the process of moving things back and forth. Great job getting it done! It looks great.
Best Regards,
Matt Grant
