|Slot top cover for a Michalak AF3|
For our spring cruise
this year, I made a slot top cover to keep the rain out of the cabin while sailing. The project made me learn about new fasteners and new techniques.
As usual, Sailrite videos helped a lot. In particular I learned how to make the boot top by copying from a mainsail cover
With the cover on, it is difficult to get into the cabin. I think my next project will to make a new version which is more like a dodger. It will be fitted around a fiberglass hoop and have a vinyl window forward so that someone can sit up in the cabin and see forward.
