it's a knock-off Aussie type. now, I don't know what's the deal but the girth that came with is... 50 INCHES!

Now I could just go down and have it shortened (about 10") but as it's only really heavy canvas, I wondered if I could try being a 'sailmaker' just for fun. I have a book on the sewing but what thinks the bilge about what sort of seam to make?

just for heck of it, now

I hate sail making, I hate having 1/4 horsepower motors driving needles through my thumb, thumb's never been the same since.

this'll have to be done by hand... no machine

anyway, as to your accident, it's 'palm and needle' not 'thumb and needle'
