When I got Katie L I also received a massive bundle of canvas - it was about the size and weight of a de-inflated dinghy. I hefted it into the van and then lifted it into the shed and there it sat for four years.
Yesterday I pulled it out and put it on the boat - what a thing of beauty. It is fitted and cut to follow her every curve.
It is funny where an old bloke gets his pleasures - makes me smile whenever I look at it.
there are a few small rips so paypal bought some of this
so once those have been repaired I will close up the lacing. Then some-one will buy the house and I will have to move the whole shebang.
