    Default Sewing thread

    Good morning all,

    Did you all enjoy Summer this year on Saturday?...... Down hill from here....

    What is the type thread we should use on our shirts namely for my Osprey?

    When I went out on the Humber I had quite a few of the cable tie ends tear.....

    You want Barbour Terko Polyester Cotton Satin 50.
    50 is the thread size. The higher the number the thinner the thread
    Do not use plain cotton as it has a limited life and doesn't stretch.


    There is plenty of info on Google but I have used the above since day one.

    Regards, Kip

    Thank you all, as usual very informative.

    Kip, where do you buy your stuff from, if it is not a trade secret that is!

    When I fitted the new skirt to the Osprey it looked soooooooo clean and shiny I did not want to take it out of the barn!!!

    But I did!

    Peter, we launch from the Humber SAR ramp under the bridge at Hessle.
    You have to register with the SAR guys and pay for a key to the ramp, or come along when one of us with a key is going out
    Gary will probably be along soon as he sorted it all out originally.
