Although we have taken two short trips to state parks and BLM this spring, can't deny we've slowed our normal spring travel. So we've once again dusted off our old (1975) Singer.
When escaped from California in '93, we sold our Catalina 27. The new owner didn't want red sails (no accounting for taste) so we brought them and plans fo a 16ft Weekender with us. Built the Weekender, cut the Catalina jenny/jib into a working jib and main. Sold the Weekender, sans sails, and built a 13.5ft Peapod. Cut the Weekender sails into a lug sail for the Peapod.
Still had the Catalina main when we bought our Journey. Cut the main into windshield and side window sunshades. Not happy. Can't see through. Bought some commercial sunshades
Since it is a slow spring, cut the sunshades into wheel well skirts and mirror socks.
In a way, we still have red sails in the sunset.
Looks like a tonneau cover. Really a sail maker's lofting table
Looks like a wood shop. Really a sail maker's loft. Peapod in back resting in her skids for refit and paint
Red looks fine -- if you account for taste.😉
