Our Sponsors ...
We've been using a SailriteUltrafeed for over
a decade. We couldn't recommend Sailrite,
their products and their customer service any
more highly. Take a look at the
website, download a catalog or request one
to have on hand. It's not just sewing
machines. Order your Sunbrella, zippers,
upholstery fabric, books and most any
sewing supply you could imagine. They've
got DIY kits galore and lots of helpful info.  
And when you do contact Sailrite ... be sure
to tell them Nine of Cups sent you!
See Marcie's article "Embracing the
Bight"  in the Nov/Dec issue of Ocean

daily blog, Just A Little
Further yet? Some sailing,
some travel, some of
everything ... from
dragonflies to dragging at
anchor, but hopefully always
entertaining. Also find us on
