Mike, looks terrific.   :D  You keep it up - work is probably the best therapy you could be doing.  If you get slow, let me know - I'll send you patterns, you can send me covers/enclosures/whatever.  It appears to be gearing up for a hectic season on this side.

Hey there Mike:
 Good Job!  Looks great! You would never tell it was a cover done by a man of your health difficulties.  Keep challenging yourself to what I see a TOTAL recovery...we are ALL rooting for you.

As always, awesome work Mike.

I have a theory when it comes to these strokes. Keep straining your brain and it will find a way to make new connections around the damaged ones. The more you work it the better it gets.

Great job Mike.

i forgot one thing the centerline but with enought reference marks you can fix that.

Thats awesome. Thought about that all day and I think I might know what you mean. Too cool.

Peppy when I patterned the front half in the front from the window forward to the bow.  
I marked the center of the  ot o the  thenpsttern at the rail but forgot to mark the center at the window between the t top bit I remembered it was 33" between the t top  at the front so 1/2 of that was the center mark ale it matched the center mark and markings o. The rear section that mated up with it.
in the  past I messed a mark like a  dot on A piece. If you mark e erything you can lay the top oTter  pTtern piece next to it and align the marks and find the missing mark.
Making a pattern like I think you do ( the who canvas top and side window and backdrop one whole side at once) you would need to do this or have this problem but I'll pTtern a top tKe off the plastic then do the windows ect.
