We lost overboard our foredeck bag for our stay sail on the trip from BVI to St Martin.

I was still a little wobbly on my design so the next morning I dashed ashore to the French equivalent of a 5 and dime and bought some cheap muslin fabric so I could make a sample before cutting into the precious $$$ Sunbrella. *Always measure 3 times and cut once but DON'T forget to carry the one. I didn't carry the one when making new cockpit cushions last week and barely had enough to complete my purple (YES) cockpit pillows. D-oh!
