Re: Is there a professional sailmaker on this forum?

Don't know that I can provide any info beyond what you know, but spent some time talking to sail makers at the strictly sail show in Oakland recently. I'm having Lee Sails do a jib and stay for my furlings. I spoke with all the big makers and these guys at Lee knew my boat as well, or better. Their quote was half of what Doyle and Quantum quoted me, and still less than Hong Kong Sail after shipping. I've always used North Sails in the past, but price wise, they were a couple thousand more as well for same material and stitching.
