Sail Care and Repair by Dan Neri

Excellent book! Very Descriptive and detailed information. This book will fill in so much for those who want to repair and maintain or modify their own sails.It lists all supplies needed aboard,quick or permanent solutions to most issues. Lots of good illustrations. An excellent resource book.Easy to understand. I would also recommend The Sailmakers Apprentice, by Emiliano Marino. If you have the two, you don't need anything else!!Both are well worth their cost and are good value!!!
expert advice on sewing heavy outdoor fabrics
November 5, 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of my favorite books because of the quality and depth of the information. I've made custom outdoor gear including bivisacks, packs, dry bags, caving harnesses, vapor barriers, caving bags, tents, tarps, pile gear, and stuff sacks, as well as winch covers and an occasional repair to a sail or bimini. For years I looked for detailed information on commercial sewing machines, bicycle panniers, seam tapes, glues, threads, and so on only to find mediocre books written by hobbyists who made cheesy canvas tote bags. This book is the mother load. It offers professional advice on tuning machines, materials, techniques, and tricks that are useful for repair, prototyping, and one off projects. It doesn't cover inexpensive variable DC motors that are now available for converting a clutch drive commercial machine into a variable speed machine because they weren't common when it was published. This book is worth every penny.
