After 10 years our cockpit cover starts to dissolve. Actually the Sunbrella fabric is all fine but the thread is breaking from the UV light and the seems are dissolving. 

Luckily we can use the big recreational area of our shipyard to bring our old Singer sewing machine over and re-stitch the big peace of fabric. Hopefully this expensive thread will survive the next few years of cruising.
