Conditions living aboard and cruising are brutal on everything. By conditions, I am referring to heat, humidity, salt air, salt spray, and their friends, corrosion, rust, mold, mildew. These partners in crimes against boats cause, fading, fatigue and failures.
Headsail repair - again. The sacrificial Sunbrella on our headsail is doing its job....sacrificing. More specifically the thread it. Sheesh. Yes, I am using UV thread. No, I am not using the Tenara I use 9 the next one down from Tenara. I think it's 92V. Tenara is super expensive and the machine doesn't like it that much. Too slick.
