While we have the dinghy home for maintenance, I decided we needed a way to "tidy it up". We've always just thrown the life preservers in the back - where they take up lots of room. You can see them in this photo from the Bahamas a couple of months ago.
I had some left over marine mesh material left over from a Island Girl project a few years ago, so I set out to make a "keeper" for the life vests.
Just made a loose bag.
And ironed some Sunbrella material for a finished edge binding.
Added a few snaps to the bag and the seat support. Very happy to have the floor space to stash groceries, etc!
