Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

On the fabric hunt

February 4, 2015

After a nice breakfast at the Market Resturant in Panama City, we checked out of the hotel and piled in the car once again.  Today's big task was to go find fabric for Melissa to make a deck shade cover for Apsaras.  Since we are going to take down the canvas cockpit material while she stays here in the marina this year, we wanted to give her some good protection.  We found some nice super wide 96" material that would be perfect.  Alas when they rolled it out to measure and cut it, we found it was covered with holes.  So we had to go with the more expensive 60" wide material which will mean a lot more sewing.  Rats!  Then it was off to the hardware and grocery stores for yet more parts and supplies before heading back to the marina.
