We offer four different construction levels for most all our sails: Inshore/Coastal, Offshore, Ultimate Offshore and Traditional. These choices offer a wide range of finish, giving you a chance to see what will best suit the intended use of the sail and your budget as well. There is no use building a heavy duty offshore cruising sail for a boat sailing in protected waters nor should an inshore cruising sail be used for going offshore since it would be under built for rugged ocean conditions.
Before we make your sails we will meet with you at your boat to measure whenever possible. This way, we will both be there to answer any questions. Perhaps we can make some recommendations for improvements here or there. We will draw up a scale sail plan of the boat to use for future reference and to double check all sail dimensions, overlaps and sheet leads.
For cruising sails we prefer to use good old Dacron, but in its modern form. Today's Dacrons are much improved and feature high tenacity (low stretch) yarns that are tightly packed during the weaving process. It is the most durable, longest lasting, most economical and proven fabric available.
