I'm planing on replacing the suncover on my genoa and am looking for a resource for material and maybe some advise on what used heavy duty sewing machines people have bought (ebay, Craigslist)to do this kind of job. My goal is to do this repair myself while gaining the tools and the knowledge at about the same cost as paying someone else to do it. I live in Victoria, BC. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. CC.
