Re: Is there a professional sailmaker on this forum?

We have a Hood main furler and a Hood sail that has worked out tremendously for us. The sail was far from new when we bought the boat but looked like it still had some life in it. We thought we would get a new sail in a year or so. That was 30,000 miles ago and the sail is still ok with only two repairs for chafe issues. I know that Hood has a good reputation for polyester sail cloth and I am a believer.
