Re: Dodger Sticker Shock!

Casey,

We bring our sails home every winter and my wife uses the Sailrite machine to sew and repair stiching ans see,s whoich ahve become degraded. We have a large basement which we bought a special rolloing open table for the machine as well as another table to hold the weight of the sail fabric as it comes through the machine so its supported and can be sewn more easily..

Last year she completely made a new scarificial sunbrella edge for the 155 .

The machine definately has the strength especially with the large weighted wheel to go through the fabric easily. It can be cumbersome in some spots but is a huge monetrray savings. Make sure you use the proper thread.
