Captain Kelly will proudly tell you he is a dumpster diver.
He often finds treasure from trash.
Shown here he found a canvas boat cover. It smells musty. Has mold growing on it. But he sees potential.
This is how he convinces me it’s worth keeping. Wash it, cut away the mold and save the good material along with the elastic and snaps. He tells me, “Kelly Girl, I could make covers for our grill, helm, and winches! ”
Please note: If I weren’t with him when he found his trash treasure, he wouldn’t tell me about it until I found it on our boat piled along with his other dumpster finds.
True to his word, he gets out our Sailrite sewing machine.
and Voila! His beautiful cover gleaned from trash.
