Recently both Good Old Boat and Sailrite provided ideas for covering pushpit rails and catbird seats. Simple and straightforward, you too could be sitting pretty.
Good Old Boat (March/April 2013 issue) had an article on covering catbird seats by Clarence Jones that is easy enough for a non sewer. He used iron on fabric mending tape to create the seams and snaps to hold the cover on.
Sailrite just did a video too. They sewed the hems and used Velcro to fasten the cover.
They both used home foam insulation underneath.
Either way would make a nice comfortable perch for any catbird.
This post is dedicated to my cat, Stella, who will not be cruising with us as she has gone to the rainbow bridge – maybe to finally catch a catbird…
