Oh, and another thing you'll probably find hard to get in our wide brown land is the 1mm uncoated copper wire for the stitching. Drove me bananas! Then, one day, I went to the local lighting/electrical place for a light bulb or a cattle-prod or something and there it was: the ordinary green-and-yellow 7-core earth wire. Each core is exactly right, and it cost about $2 per metre. Multiply that by the seven strands, and it's something like maybe $5-$10 for the whole boat... stripping the cover is super-easy too. Bingo!
