We're leaving the trampolines in place for as long as possible as a safety precaution while we complete the bow sections. The fabric is Stamoid, woven polyester coated on both sides with vinyl. It's heavy, the finished cover will weigh about 100 pounds, however it will be in 2-3 sections and velcro-ed together.
Let me just say, "Buggers, it's hot!" (Darren's Aussie slang has invaded my vocabulary.) Working under the boat is much cooler. Here I'm adding cone-shaped collars at designated points to go around the stanchions, then adding a placket to one side of the opening below the collar so the sections can be velcro-ed closed.
We begin the day's work around 7:30 and stop for the day around 4:30. Mostly I'm sewing while Dick is cutting or marking the fabric. Dick isn't getting his afternoon siesta these days and I'm so exhausted by day's end. The fabric is so heavy and the pieces so long that my arms are getting a workout. Dick has also taken over the cooking and laundry which I appreciate.
