We purchased replacement Sunbrella upholster fabric, thread and plastic slide strips (that fit your track) from Sailrite.com. Lucky for me our boating buddies have a standard sewing machine and the wife donated her time (instead of gas money). :>). She said the work was easy, just time
consuming. Larry Fell, 1989 Gas FB

Prior owners of our boat did something similar, but they used normal fabric rather than sunbrella. They custom made the curtains and used new slide strips. The curtains have a little pleat every 6" or so, which is a nice touch. We've since broken a few of the little plastic slide tabs, but they were easy to replace. Sailrite carries them, and my wife just sewed the new ones into the curtains.

In the original Cape Dory 28 owners manual it states that the salon curtains should be dry cleaned. My dry cleaner is a little nervous about the plastic slide tabs and whether or not the colors will run. I'm almost positive my curtains are the original and I doubt they've every been cleaned!

Besides my taking one of the plastic tabs out and attaching it to a draw back and running them through the dry cleaning process as an experiment, are there any other experiences out there with cleaning these curtains?

Hi-
Does your 28 have hot water from the engine exhaust and is there a shower line that fits on the sink faucet in the head?
