  Hi Bob How much for a servo motor with a speed dial for my 563 juki
  thanks Mike From Livonia MI.

  Thanks DBR1957
  I was wondering about useing 2 zip or just 1 long one
  the 2 zips make cents
  and i like the idea of sewing one side of the binding first

  My first time sewing zipper
  This will be one more learning curve for me
  Before i start to pattern the boat to make a new top
  and ill just reuse the zips on the new top

                  Thanks Mike H     

  Thanks June and Mike
  hears a pic of the top with the bow pocket
So mike your saying cut it down the middle and put the  teeth even with    the cut and then bind should i use seam tape to hold the zip in place ?   

                        Mike H
     bimni top is 7 years old i want to install zip on the
     bow pockets. Shoud i cut the pocket at the seam
     then cut off 1"off the pocket and then sew zips back on

     I am going to make a new top so putting zips on the pockets
     will make the pattern job easer to take the top off and back on.

    i been watching the videos wow if i hear one more
   DOT i think ill go out of my mind
    This Dot to that Dot the bottom Dot and top Dot
