Re: My Peak Sails Experience

Rather than go through Peak Sails you can order direct with Wilfer Sails. They are the Chinese loft that Peak sails buys from. They then mark them up. On a spinnaker that cost 2400 from Peak it was 1800 from Wilfer. Because of other issues Wilfer has, I ended up going with Kappa Sails for considerably more but with the knowledge that the sails are built here (Ohio) and the commitment for quality and service is there. Peak Sails is far from a legitimate sail maker. They are brokers, nothing more. They are, as the BBB listing shows (F), poor businessmen. Art Kelly's previous business attempt, Kelly-Hanson, had a BBB listing of an "F" as well. My conversation with Art showed how unprofessional and un-businesslike a person can be. I can see no benefit from doing business with these people. Your sails are your primary engine, don't short yourself or your boat.
