Who wants a set of dinghy chaps? I haven’t made chaps but I’ve collected a few sites that have information on making them. I made that huge cover shown in Sewing Projects. The cover is a great protector of the hypalon dinghy against sun. But it is a pain to store when not in use due to its size. Using the dinghy on a regular basis, chaps make sense. You may want to jump in and go or come home and pull her up for the night. Chaps may help keep the dinghy cooler to sit on when it gets hot in the sun. I am collecting pictures and instructions for chaps. Here’s my list so far.
