Getting some shade
11 June 2011 | Lagos
I have finally got round to photographing the new dinghy cover and "New, improved larger Bimini cover made by Uncle Jack on both his and my new sewing machine at home. More economical than getting it made here, as we were quoted 400e for the Bimini while wintering in Lagos in 2009. The wider Bimini keeps more sun off then the old one and doesn't affect windage when cruising.
My new Singer sewing machine is light enough to come out in hand luggage next time - it will be great not having to sew by hand! However it is robust enough to cope with heavy materials and quite a powerful motor for it's size. It will also so work off the boat 12v supply which might be handy.
I remembered to bring the needles out in our hold luggage last time!
