Do either of you have any idea as to the sewing method used?
I'm having problems with the pre-cork measurements also, as I believe I explained above.
I just don't want this thread to get lost under tons of old threads, for I'm hoping that either you two guys or someone else can help me out with this. My heart's really in this and trying to get this as historically accurate as possible. I went and purchased my canvas today and thread. I've found a site for the cork that I will need, I just have to put the order in.
Dan I'd still very much like to see your lifejacket that you made if you ever get a chance to post a pic of it. Anyone else who can help will be most appreciated! Thanks guys, and thanks for your patience during my nagging for info.
