I see our illustrious leader has been asking in TOP about this.
The answer is very simple Nicodemus. Any sailmaker will do this. Owens would be the easiest for you.
However - I think your question, knowing you of old, lacked a certain qualification.
Perhaps if you had added "for about £3" you might get responses in line with your desired outcome.
Ye tight wee beggar.

An investment in a decent sewing machine - a possible future income stream? - and evenings spent sewing instead of wasting money in the Troosers would be a win/win, possibly for the denizens of the Troosers ?

I can forsee another collective purchase scheme here.
But someone else can organise that one!

I need a new spray hood sometime in the next year or two - mine starting to fall apart.
Having once repaired a marquee with an industrial sewing machine, I would not go there again. That's hard work and getting it right is even harder!

I bought a kit one, years ago at a Boat Jumble. It was for our Hunter Delta and we got it fitting very well.
The kit came from Martex
They have a website

I can't see a website for Martex other than that for container ships in Rotherham an oxymoron for sure. Do these Martex peeps do sail covers?

Classiest indeed. This is a grave error, insult even, by Apple, by whom this is being written, as his Apple iphone has departed this life in a violent explosion leaving the auld goat bereft, despondent and silent. For which we can only be ... erm .... thankful?
