What type of thread are you using for sewing? I have ordered and used their heavy threads and they held up well with my projects for our boat.

Last one is a thread guide.

Good luck with your project!
I'm familiar with Sailrite. Thanks for the links.

The basting stitch length seems adequate with regular thread. I assume it will be even stronger with tanara. Just wanted to make sure there was nothing different with the basting stitch construction itself that made it temporary.

Looking at using tenara and buying a big spool in clear so it will match anything I sew. Good idea?
