Foul-weather gear comes from Canor Plarex of Norway: an almost gossamer shield of well-cut vinyl-coated Egyptian cotton in high visibility yellow with all seams first sewed, then heat-welded, fastened with a combination of drawstrings, snaps, buttons and zippers (two-piece; women's $23.95, men's $24.95).
For gentler weather, afloat or ashore, Joe Harris has a charming short-sleeved shirt, patterned with charts of the Grenadine Islands, blue on pale blue or blue on white ($4.50, patterned for men and women). Favorites with the yachting set are the combed cotton T shirts in navy with white stripes for men ($3.95) and navy and white or red and white for women, at the same price. These are worn with faded-blue-denim slacks (men's $5.95 and $6.95). Similar fly-front faded denims are designed for women by Fleischman ($8.95) and are also available in navy and white duck. Women's knee pants are $7.95.
Joe Harris carries the classic water-repellent and windproof nylon sailing parkas. Men's ($14.95) come in red or navy. Women's are $11.95 and are royal blue or yellow as well as red and navy. Both parkas feature hoods and drawstring waists for snug fit. Women's parkas are the pullover style, while men's have a zip front.
Safe footing afloat or ashore is assured by a line of Sperry shoes with antislip soles. These soles are attached to a variety of styles, including a canvas oxford in white, navy or red ($9.95, men's or women's); and elk moccasins ($18.95, men's or women's).
Joe Harris also sells a rigging knife with steel blades and a locking marlin spike ($7.95), and a knife kit with plier tool combining a wrench and screwdriver added ($13.95). The company will provide almost anything on special order. Right now the Joe Harris company is making up a burgee for a yacht club on Kwajalein.
