Boatleather

Sabre 30 Mk II


Reader Pete Tollini’s Sabre 30 Mk II, Solace, lazes along Chesapeake Bay. Tollini suggests using Boatleather products for chafe gear. We have not yet tested these.

In your test of chafing gear, you omitted Boatleather’s chafing sleeves (www.boatleather.com). As with all of the Boatleather products I’ve added, the chafing sleeves are both elegant and practical. They fall somewhere between store-bought and DIY. You’ll have to learn the baseball stitch and spend a little time and effort, but the results are worth it. Besides, it’s good practice for making that wheel cover you’ve always wanted!
