How to clean boat sails

By admin

Do you know the proper way to CLEAN THE SAILS of your boats? And how to REPAIR THEM and KEEP THEM neat and in good shape, so that they last for many years? And how to CLEAN the gelcoat COVER?

In this episode we see how, but we do not stop there, but we will also see how to make small and large repairs to sails and AWNINGS, and even how to design textile pieces for our boat, for example: how to join the bimini with the spray cover. We will address emergency repairs with the sewing awl (Quick Sticher) as well as with various adhesive tapes and we will see the use of the sewing machine, and the advantages and speed it gives us. And all this browsing and enjoying, while we talk with experts in the field.

My thanks to Fausto from Velería Tres Mares, in Cantabria. That he has advised me, helped me and let me play with his little machines. https://www.instagram.com/veleriatresmares/
