    Cover repair-gctid802593

    My full size cover split horizontally that started as a small rip but expanded almost all the way down. I've tried repairing with tape but it doesn't work. I have a sewing machine with pedal but not sure it this is too thick or not. Any suggestions?

    Did the material fail, or did a seam come apart? If it is the former, you may want to get a new one. If the seam let go, a good sewing machine with some beefy poly thread will make quick work of it. I have a fairly cheap digital sewing machine, and I sew Sunbrella, sail canvas and naugahyde with it.

    Or you could remove that panel and sew a new one in its place. I'd use a different color, because unless it matches exactly, it's gonna look cheap, ....unless you really don't care what it looks like. :silly:

      It was ripped by dragging it on the ground and then caught a nail, causing a small hole. Later that hole was caught on other items on the boat or ground while removing the cover from time to time, and the hole progressively got larger, to the point of where it is now.

        You should be able to sew it yourself. An upholstery shop or auto seat cover shop probably wouldn't charge very much to sew it.
