Re: Sail tape not sticking

find good glue--not wood glue.
tape sail with good glue. might wanna ask a sailmaker about what kinda glue to buy for this..

sew the glued taped area all around the edges of tape with zig zag stitches. twice. not on top of each other.
then mebbe the sail tape might stick.
have fun...

when you are finished screwing up your sail, the sailmakers can still repair it, so it isnt a big deal to try to fix it first.....might just cost a tad more than if you didnt try too hard at home...
