General Discussion / Re: Pontoon Support Poles
« on: December 14, 2013, 09:56:49 PM »
I use the boat vent II on all my covers and for poles I have a set of adjustable poles to use while I build the cover to determine exact size then I cut the final poles from 1/2 electric conduit and put rubber chair stops on the floor end. Adjustable poles tend to slip with the weight of snow.

As far as cutting the holes, I have a small cup that is just the right size that I trace around and then cut the hole with my seam ripper or scissors. Also, I don't use sunbrella for pontoon covers, but typically Aqualon or Top Gun.

Not sure if this is what you need, but here are two videos, one for maintenance and one for basic sew tips and tricks etc.

That's pretty cool Gene. Most of my customer's are from the "If you can't tie a knot tie a lot" crowd!

Thanks for tips. Think I'll try Mike's idea and see if that will appease him. Perhaps use the silicone too.

General Discussion / Needle Holes in Bimini Top
« on: August 01, 2013, 07:06:25 PM »
I made a bimini top for a pontoon boat and accidently stitched one of the frame pocket zippers on in the wrong direction. After correcting this little mishap, I now have a complaing customer who is worried that the holes are going to be a problem later. The zipper is 24" so I have a nice set of holes about that long.

The fabric is 11 ounce Harbor Time which is very similar to Top Gun. I was thinking that if He (the customer) would just leave the top up for a week or two, the holes would close up. I also thought about trying to steam them. Any ideas other that replacing the entire panel?

Yeah, my favorite is "My boat was running poor last year when I put it away" and now he needs it by the week end because company is coming in from out of town! Well, I need hair to grow on my head and a million bucks in my checking account too!

I am currently working 60-70 hours a week trying to catch up. Not complaining though, better than the alternative.

I have the videos from both schools and there are things that I like and dislike about both. Also, I went to the Northcoast school for their sewing machine repair class and it was very good.

Sounds like bad fiberglass, perhaps there was an air pocket between the substrate and gel coat when the boat was built or a bad mixture of resin. Anyway, it wasn't your fault, the guy has a lemon!

« on: April 24, 2013, 07:08:22 PM »
Last year my wife came along to help me dart and fit a cover. She dropped three quick fit pins in the water in about two minutes! I made her sit in the truck! Okay, not really but I was starting to stress every time she said "oops"

A friend once told me to be successful; "Do one thing and do it very well". Although I have never followed this to the letter, the further I get away from this principle, the more stressed I get while NOT making more money.

Just my .02 worth, no pun intended.

General Discussion / Hand power fine wire stapler
« on: April 22, 2013, 06:50:28 PM »
Does anyone know of a decent hand power or mechanical stapler that shoots fine wire staples? Occasionally I find myself in a situation where there is no electric or air and I need to staple stuff.
