Saturday was operation dinghy cover. I threw away the Weathermax colour sampler about 8 days ago as I thought it was not required, so naturally the old dinghy cover split shortly after bin collection day.😑
The old cover, cheap and cheerful fabric from EBay had uv degraded at last-after a reasonable time, it has to be said.
I rang the sail loft at our local chandlery.
“What colour can I get to go with British Racing Green?”
”Not sure, someone has wandered off with my colour book.”
We commiserated and checked the website. Steve recommended a charcoal grey with a lighter yarn woven in and I went for that.
A couple of days later, he rang to say it was in. We drove over and he did a contactless delivery into the car. Result.
I like Weathermax, it is light and very high spec, so the new cover went together quite fast. I just need to do eyelets tomorrow and job’s a good’un..
Spiderman and generally Marvel masks...sorry coverings.
