Woot, I just made a ditty bag using my home sewing machine. Pics forthcoming!

She's way cuter than you, Dave. I'm just sayin'

I'll be in SD in late April and May working on a destroyer and this ride is definitely on my list. It isn't even that expensive.

You could make a hat, or a broach, or a pterodactyl.

Mark she is way better looking

Its a great afternoon. They also sell bags made out of the sails there, but we bought some sail to make stuff out of ourselves.

We ran the harbor and also went out about 5 miles

The ride is amazing. The captain is a great guy too and they limit the number of people on the boat so the experience is A1. The small crew on her are volunteer and race her in the afternoons still. price is great. They also take pictures and post them online for you to download free. Couldnt beleive doing 10 knotts in 11 knotts of wind and perfectly flat. Is a thing to not miss doing.

If you can get the time go north the Long Beach or Dana Point and charter a sailboat for a few days and go over tho Catalina. We did that also was a blast. We joined a sailclub out there for fairly cheap and the charter was not bad.

Re: What can I EASILY make out of an old sail

So I make a ditty bag with a simple drawstring top for toys, and then this fits inside a larger bag for clothes.. I think this first attempt had the bag too fat and not tall enough.



Not sure how to close off the duffel-type bag, probably use some old sheet rope through some grommets. I also plan to waterproof the sewing with backpacking tent seam sealer.

I need to figure out an better way to close the top of the duffel so its vaguely waterproof and easy to make.
