I'm making covers for our boat instruments and hatches. I'm using naugahyde and bias edging made from rip stop. I want to run bungee-type elastic through the edging so that we can cinch the covers on snugly by pulling the elastic and securing it.

Does anyone have a source for this kind of elastic cord? I'm looking for white, 1/4" round that will hold up under marine weather conditions.

Thanks!

Have you checked out Seattle Fabrics? If not, you might email and see if they have the exact thing. They do carry boat and marine fabrics.

If you google the words "bungee cord by the yard", you get a whole list. It is also called "shock" cord.

shock cord ~ white. This link takes you to a source with white cord. I haven't ever ordered from this site, but you might call and talk to them if you have questions.

It was a while ago but I think I bought some of this at a sporting goods store locally. I needed to fix our tent poles. It is called shock cord.

Boat instrument and hatch covers; now, see there, that's what I'm talking about. When someone asks me, What do you sew?, and I try to explain, a bit of everything, they don't really get it.

I had no idea there were other boatees on here! Where were you all when I swore my way through sewing our skylight covers last year? :P

West Marine may be another source. Also the Rain Shed.

For anybody doing a odd job in a hurry, sometimes the local marine specialist (refitting, sail making, upholstering) will make these supplies available at a good price. And, sometimes you can get some old sails to play with too.

squirrellypoo, Your skylight covers are a great idea. And vinyl is a bit of a nuisance to work with. Now you've gone and left me a bit nostalgic. My grandparents lived on a boat for about 4 years after they retired and I had a nice long summer stay with them before they left on their retirement journey/cruise.
