Practical Boat Canvas Work
With an average amount of skill and a little patience there are many improvements that can be made to any boat by making things from sewn fabric. This book contains useful, easily-made articles that will make life easier aboard and in many cases will provide protection from the elements for both crew and equipment. The step-by-step instructions are easily followed and are illustrated with clear diagrams and photographs.
Stowaway lazy jacks, spray dodgers, sheet pockets and hatch covers are just some of the practical items for above-deck use, while hanger pockets, lee cloths and cushions can be used below.
