The sail bags get old in a hurry. This zodiac bag (for the dingy) was completely redone about one year ago. The sun takes a lot out of it.

Same with the red bag for the number 2 Dacron jib.

So we start with a cuppa...

Get our materials...

And get to work.

Get to work

I can do a simple bag in one day. Complicated bags take about two days.
Red Bags Forever

All the bags have bright colors and big code numbers. This makes it easier to quickly locate and hand up the right bag.

This sail (J5-Storm Jib) will never (hopefully) be used, but the bag will last forever when kept in the storage locker.
Number 5 sail bag (Storm Jib)

J-3 Bag

Code J3

There are about 6 more sails in the storage locker, already in good bags, either new or ones I have already sewn or upgraded. Most of the sails themselves are also new or very good condition, and now all of them are in nice bags. They all look good.

Forepeak looks good

When the day's work is done, it's time for a good glass of wine and a tasty home cooked meal.

Wow! That is very cool! Sewing skills must run in the family, I sewed quilts this year, six so far, but I will admit the first one was easiest and the last one dragged a bit'
Your bags look great, good job big bro!
