Sailmaking seam rubber, ca. 1974

Contributed by an individual through Maine Historical Society

After both sides of the flat seam are complete, the length of finished stitching is worked over with the seam rubber to flatten and even out the tension. This seam rubber belongs to Grant Gambell, a sailmaker in Camden.
