Yup, this is exactly the way I have been approaching it. Btw, just got a materials quote from my friend, and I can cover all the cushions and make a new mainsail cover for just under $400. And of course, some elbow sewing grease, so to speak. Also, since I'll have the shop available, cutting the patterns will be a breeze (i.e., plenty of room to lay everything out).

Wrt the marina? You and the missus are more than welcome to drop by to say "hi." Will pm the gate/slip.
