A really nice sailor just bought my Read’s Sail Maker Sewing Machine! This was a hand crank machine Andy and I purchased many years ago when we were sailing tiny CARRONADE in Europe, my honeymoon! I said good bye to a dear old friend who helped me and Andy equip our small 30 foot sloop with a lot of canvas items! The sewing machine came aboard our new boat KANDARIK and was used, not only by me and Andy, but by many other cruising folk as we sailed around the world.
These aft facing hatch dodgers were just one of the many projects that great sewing machine made possible while we were sailing.
She has gone to a new owner who will use her and sail many more miles with her. While I posted a Blog about this wonderful sewing machine a while ago, this Post is for Tyler! I will post it again with a little story of interest!
I hope you enjoy it again as well,
