I would agree. Cushion fabric and tent material, though, isn’t the thickness of modern marine canvas. Punching through multiple layers of Sunbrilla and zipper or Velcro material will defiantly tax machines not up for the task to failure. In my research on machines I came across a lot of forum posts talking about clone machines that worked ok but if/when they failed there was no support. I broke a part on my from operator error “how thick will it sew at high speed” and had the new part at my door in 4 days free under warranty. I knew once I started I would venture off into more larger and challenging projects. This is why I went with a more robust machine with a walking foot and support. It’s all about what you want. I would at least purchase a used Pfaff or other like machine or pay someone else to do it and be done.You don’t need their machine for most boat work. Look for a basic machine with metal internal gears, I got one from Joanne’s fabrics. Also check out Dutch ware gear (they focus on tents and screens kits). I’ve made cushions for the cockpit, and recut a broken tent into a pop up tent for overnights.
Actually the Sailrite, Barracuda, Rex and all the others are knock offs of the original Thompson machine. Just the Sailrite is better executed with excellent support.Hi All, CaptVR here again with a correction. A few years have past, the Sailrite machine is now $1000+ WOW. So for their name brand it is big bucks.
There are other import knock-offs. Barracuda and Rex. From what I understand, they are direct knockoffs where most parts interchangeable. Both with a good reputation. These run between $350 and $500
