second glance revealed "Passagemaker Main" and same for my 135% jib...
for anyone that decries the 'price', you are missing a bigger picture which is: preventative maintenance is the key. 18 year old sails and they are good as new..a suit O' sails for $901...helluva deal as far as i'm concerned.
now, if you send ratty, tattered cloth to em, be prepared for big expense or a "they're too far gone..we buried them at sea" bad on you for waiting so long..remember, our sails are our usually guaranteed source of power,please treat em with respect.
now i wanna go sailing..speaking of which..anyone in the lower ches bay who wants to go out the last week of me..i'm near mobjack bay in mathews co.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.
