Product Description

•••••

These days the canvas we work is likely to be a synthetic fiber, superior to its natural-fiber predecessor in most every way. Today, the average canvasworker's fingers are not like marlinspikes, nor, if you have a good ordinary sewing machine, do they need to be. Canvaswork is unchanged in one sense, though: It can result in an almost endless variety of attractive and functional gear for a boat. The old tars would have envied what we can turn out today. The Complete Canvasworker's Guide is a thorough, step-by-step introduction to making all common items of canvas boat gear. This is more than an idea book. All the instructions are here, in a straightforward, no-frills format developed by Jim Grant, to answer the needs of canvasworking students and mail-order customers. This edition is larger by half and thoroughly updated and revised, with many new illustrations.
