I have never used one. For the seams I use a hot knife to cut the fabric for Sunbrella and then either fold under and stich or sometimes use binding depending on if it is an edge or just a seam.

General Discussion / Replacing part of an enclosure
« on: June 13, 2010, 10:04:19 PM »
I have a customer that wants me to replace about half of his eisenglass. How can I do this and get the zippers to match up? Should I also replace the zipper half in the window pieces that I am not replacing? I am also concerned about getting the new pieces to fit good without wrikels etc. so what is the best way to pattern the replacement windows?

Please excuse my extreme lack of intelligence ???

<img src="http://i752.photobucket.com/albums/xx168/timtheboatguy/060900_192900.jpg" border="0" alt="my old Singer"></a>

It is a 31-19, manufactured around 1930 I think.

I was looking in my Marine Fabricator Magizine (Jan/Feb) which has a MFA Time Standards Manual toward the back of the publication. There are charts that give the hours that it should take to fabricate various items. For example a boat cover for a 24' boat shows 10Hrs for 2 passes 16Hrs for 3 passes and 18 Hrs for 4 passes.

What exactly do they mean by passes?
