Mate there's lots I can't do. The difference is I don't become comfortable. I don't stop wanting and I don't stop growing, I don't become satisfied. When I have a goal that I'm stretching for, reaching out of my comfort zone then I'll find talents and abilities that I didn't know I had.

I play the below link at a minimum of once per day. Sometimes up to ten times per day, depending on how bad of a day I'm having. I relate what he says to my dreams and AXE.

I asked her if she wanted more light. Being the stubborn ole' Goat she is, she told me she didn't need one. First chance I got I got her a new LED work light and a magnifying glass on one of those long clamp thingies. She finally had to admit that the light and magnifying glass were absolutely the best additions to the sewing table ever!

Ya know we don't see as well as we did when we were youngsters!

Carry on mate!

If still wondering about gunnel /bulwark width..many sportfishers with cockpits have'm 12 inches or so.

Google up a bunch of pics and guestimate the width from other objects and decide what looks right for you.

How wide are your gunwales? and would you make yours wider or narrower?


Thanks in advance
What kind of hardwood you gonna use for your rails ?

Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

New toy arrived today. Pretty excited to use it. It's a heavy little bastard!

I placed it in the carry case and looked at mounting it all into the desk like that but it's going to be dodgy and bugger up the carry case itself which may come in handy if I need to any site repairs on AXE etc.

I'll make a template and screw it off to the underside of the desk and router out the hole from the top for a neat flush fit then mount a shelf underneath to support the machine and ensure the desk and machine working surfaces are flush.

I've got the iPad set up behind the machine so I can stream and watch "How to sew" videos

I need to buy a plug adaptor from EU/US style socket to fit a AU socket. It should be good once it's all up and running.

Yes you may want that case it is heavy but the case makes it a bit easier to carry

Sailrite has some great videos my wife is working on the flybridge seating now

Hello Matt

Pamela loves the machine and the support

the only thing I think she said earlier in the thread when I mentioned you were going to get one was to use it first before a project to get it loosened up.

She has Completed the sundeck cushions for the boat ( we have had many people ask us for the name of the contractor that did them )

Chase lounge cushions for our pool

V sunblock curtains for the boat

working on the flybridge cushions now (well she is actually asleep now)

she uses the sailrite videos frequently but also says they have great customer support when needed

I am also think she uses a App sailrite recommended I will ask her when she gets up

Hey Matt that's the same machine we have . I still need to get a hot knife and few other things. I haven't tried any good canvas yet just some cheap stuff . It sure is different from woodworking . You will love the walking foot and zig zag . Good luck with it .

Too Cool!

Linda is in process of choosing a new sew machine. I will show her this video. We will look closely into this sewer brand.

Thanks!, Guys! - Art

That's great to hear mate. Would love to see some pics!

How long does Pam think I should "run it in" for? Are we talking an hour or is it longer?
