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 feb..pm me..i'm near mobjack bay in mathews co.
